Message from the Club President

It’s odd how the Festive season suddenly manifests on us. I am reminded of a comment by Neddy Seagoon in the Goon Show (remember it?), "Christmas eve and still no offers of pantomime."

We are not so late in the club. Arrangements are well advanced for our bag packing and Santa's visit at Sainsbury’s on Saturday 15th December. I hope you will stop with your children to speak to Santa and don’t forget to make a donation. Our Christmas lunch is on 18thDecember when we welcome friends to join us for a traditional festive meal. I look forward to meeting you all.

Since the demise of our Nairnshire Challenge the club cannot rely on a sizeable annual income, though it was diminishing substantially over the years. Thus we are working hard to prepare fund raising events to build up funds to aid and support good causes and individuals in Nairn and district. We hope that Friends of Nairn Rotary will come forward to assist the members of the club in these new ventures.

Our Big Tea was a great success and everyone enjoyed the food, music and fashion show, I thank all who gave of their time, provisions and support. 

I wish all a very joyous Christmas and a happy and healthy 2019

John Brown
President of Nairn Rotary Club
