AGM Meeting / SADSA Treasure Chest Presentation – 29 May 2018
Last week’s meeting was our AGM when the usual, end-of-year, administrative business was efficiently dealt with by President Craig Wilson and Secretary Douglas Haddow. Short reports were delivered on scatter week visits to Cumnock, Troon, Kilmarnock and Alloway Rotary clubs.
During the course of the proceedings, Mr Tom Cunningham was awarded honorary membership for his long-time commitment to the club. Tom moved from Hawick in 1974 to become postmaster in Ayr and was club president in 1986. The evening also saw the club welcome its latest new member, John Dunlop. John grew up as a boy in Ayr and has recently moved back here.
Our principal guest for the evening was Liz Campbell of South Ayrshire Dementia Support Group. Liz had come along for the formal presentation of a cheque for £5,000, raised at our recent annual golf day event. She thanked Ayr Rotary Club for the generous gift which she said would help to make life a little easier for many dementia sufferers and their carers in South Ayrshire.
