Members of the Saalfelden (Austria) Rotary Club, together with family members, visited Glasgow from 31st May until 3rd June.  We helped them to organise events during their stay and were delighted to join them in a very full and enjoyable programme.

On the first evening we hosted a Rotary dinner in their honour during which we were able to get to know each other in a wonderful, relaxed, celebration of Rotary fellowship.

On the next day (Friday) there was a coach tour to the amazing historical Stirling Castle.  We then toured the scenic Trossachs National Park, and ened up - as one does! - at the famous Glencoyne Scotch Whisky Distillery.

Saturday was a shopping and sightseeing day in the centre of Glasgow.

Our thanks to Gordon Fairbrother (Charing Cross) and Franz Mittendorfer (Saalfelden) for the hard work they put into the ideas, admin and organisation of everything relating to the visit. 

This was an example of Rotary fellowship at its best!  Friendships were made, and we now have an open invitation for our club to visit Saalfelden!
