A Double Helping this Week

   Rear         Fiona Cameron and Bob Baldie

   Seated     Gordon Peterkin – Lady Fraser – President Tim Hale

Forfar Rotary Club had a two reasons to celebrate this week at their regular meeting. President Tim Hale had the pleasant duty to welcome a new member to the club when Bob Baldie was inducted into the world wide membership of Rotary. Bob is a well know man in the town where he is head technical teacher at Forfar Academy. He is especially recognised for his work with youngsters being involved with after school activities and with his work with Strathmore Rugby Club. His enthusiasm and knowledge will be a great asset to Forfar Rotary.

Also on the agenda was the introduction of Lady Fiona Fraser, speaker for the evening who gave an insight to life as a parliamentarians wife, delivering her interesting talk to all who were in attendance. She skilfully used her talk of her personal life to wind up with her complimenting the club on their huge contribution to Cancer Research. Her interest in visiting the club where she has spoken previously gives rise to her being so well known at the club that Lady Fiona or Lady Fraser is quite happy to be welcomed as simply Fiona. She certainly has a great rapport with the members who listened to her talk, effortlessly delivered without notes.

Money donated to the Jacqui Wood Centre has been donated by the Marafun and it was noted that this again will be to the fore when further details are released for the Angus Marafun 2014. Registration forms are already being prepared along with new initiatives for an even bigger day in May 2014 are finalised. Regular updates will appear in the press as preparations are finalised.
