In a busy meeting at Forfar Rotary, President Robin Wardhaugh welcomed Logan Anderson from the Guide Dogs for the Blind. Logan is well known in the town and further afield in his role with the Guide Dogs. After the welcome Logan received a cheque from the club and he in turn spoke briefly to the members intimating he will shortly be retiring and so this would be one of his last tasks concerning the Guide Dogs.
