Local organisations rewarded at Forfar Rotary.
This weeks meeting at Forfar Rotary was a special night for those groups who supported the “Santa Sleigh” in the weeks before Christmas. As in the past they were represented by a nominated person who attended on behalf of each organisation. The task involved the calling on households collecting donations on behalf of Forfar Rotary to allow them to carry out its charity work. The undertaking to carry out this project could not be done without outside help and Forfar Rotary is fully aware of the importance of their participation.
President Jim McCluskey thanked everyone including Rotarians themselves for their participation on the pre Christmas event that is a very busy month long event with the street collections and Santa at the Cross . President Jim said occasions such as these are important for the whole community as it spreads the money collected from the Forfar Public by letting them know of where their money goes. He gave a commitment that the event will continue and as a result of the generous giving from the Forfar citizens more money will be donated towards maintaining a festive feel to the town in cooperation with Forfar Action Network. More details of further donations will be given in the coming month.
