The end of June sees the Club reset its management and outlook with the Club Assembly and Handover. Not that this means a completely new future but a regular look at what has worked and what needs to be looked at. This created the format for an enjoyable evening.
President Gillian was clear about the Club going from strength to strength through the active membership, friendliness and the number of new members. Young musicians, young artist and young photographers and school interviews completed a real progression of the club with the young community.
Raising money with the Tayside Challenge and the Charity Calendar showed how hard work had paid off again over the year. There was the regular Golf Challenge and the Charity Dinner which were fully attended and contributed significantly to the Club funds and enjoyment of members and their friends.
The Club Assembly and Handover cannot be complete without the traditional awards. Iain Brown successfully garnered the quaich for top member position as well as the less salubrious prize as the furthest travelled having been to South Africa.
President Gillian then handed over her office to Ian E Brown for the inauguration of his year. Ian was very honoured to take the role following such a successful year for the Club. His comment that ‘if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it’ was truly meant as a thought provocation for the coming year. The aims and objectives of the Club are created by out Convenors with minor adjustments to reflect any special needs.
Ian then asked our Assistant District Governor John Holme to say a few words to celebrate out event. John began by celebrating the fact that he had always been made very welcome by our Club. He added the three F’s to show how the Club works across the board for all members even with such an emphasis nowadays on risk assessments. Equality and diversity are important now and new membership should be a point of fun for everyone.
It only remains for us to thank everyone for their contribution to a very smooth and significant evening and look forward to a great year.
