We are delighted to be celebrating our 100th anniversary – our Century of Service in 2021-22
In our long and proud history we have donated hundreds of thousands of pounds and practical help to the people of Dundee and beyond, all in keeping with the Rotary motto of Service Above Self.
In our landmark year this record is to continue as we prepare to donate more than £100,000 to good causes in Dundee in a full programme of projects and events worthy of our special celebration.
Our celebrations have been a long time in planning by our Centenary Committee of Past President Robert Dunn (chair) and members President Clive Murray, President-Elect Andrew Argo, Past Presidents Mary Crighton, Jim Patrick, Tim Heilbronn, Gavin Strachan and Peter Leyland; Treasurer Michelle Lyall and Rotarian Wendy Maltman.
Some parts of the centenary calendar have had to be rescheduled because of the Covid pandemic restrictions.
But these troubled times we are experiencing are not dissuading us from marking our Century of Service in a big way.
In the following pages Centenary Committee Chair Robert Dunn gives an overview of the programme, projects and events for the next year, here
Other pages give details of some of our key projects that are already in place.
- A £24,000 scheme to provide tutoring support to pupils at four Dundee secondary schools whose education has been disrupted by the Covid pandemic. here
- A £25,000 bursary scheme to pay the fees of post-graduate design students at Duncan of Jordanstone College in Dundee for the next five years. here
- Rotary Club of Dundee’s support for a major medical research project by the University of Dundee. here
- Matched funding joint ventures with the Nine Incorporated Trades of Dundee and the Dundee Guildry. The first will see ten grants of £2000 each being awarded to ten charities to mark the start of our centenary year in May. The second will see £10,000 being donated to a healthcare project. here
