A very warm welcome from President Jen Shearer to the Rotary Club of Callander and West Perthshire.
Our club is set within the Trossachs, one of the most beautiful and scenic parts of Scotland. We are easily accessible from the central belt being just 1 hour from Glasgow and 1 hour 20 minutes from the centre of Edinburgh. This area is described as "Scotland in Miniature" and visitors to our meetings and events are assured of true Highland hospitality within a scenic setting.
New members are always welcome. Unfortunately, due to the Covid-19 situation, we are currently unable to hold live meetings and so cannot invite you to come along and meet us at this time. However, if you think it might be of interest, why not drop me an email - I'd be delighted to have a chat. We hope it won't be too long before we are able to resume live meetings and when we do you'll be assured of a warm welcome!
On 30th June, we said thank you to outgoing President Michael Kay for steering us through a tough year and then we welcomed incoming Club President Jen Shearer, who now starts her second stint in this role. And the difference? We did it via Zoom. Covid has prevented us meeting face-to-face for nearly four months now and although it has not stopped us helping out in our community and planning for the future, it has not been without its difficulties. Thank goodness then for Zoom. This online conferencing app, known only to a relative few until the Covid outbreak, has been a Godsend. We have used it to hold Council meetings, our AGM and our Club Assembly (at which we make plans for the coming year) and then we used it for a virtual handover
