Our newest member, Ken Thompson, gave his job talk at the end of the month. He took us on an enjoyable journey around the UK with his 33 years career with Littlewoods and a mere ten years more as a sub-postmaster in Somerset and Grange-over-Sands.
The journey began with some introduction to life as he was offered manager of the Londonderry Littlewoods store. His 13 months provided a list of hair-raising events through being evacuated from the store some forty three times. A more settled part of the journey took Ken to Wrexham, Chesterfield, London, Cardiff and, finally, Aberdeen.
It was while at Aberdeen that Ken became involved with the start of the Rotary Kidsout which began in 1990. Littlewoods was the sponsor for the scheme. This brought Ken within the Rotary orbit and he made the decision to become a Rotarian
Perth Kinnoull is now his fourth Rotary Club. His first, by chance, was St Machar where he was inaugurated by our own Bruce Cameron, the then president.
