Rotary Club of Grangemouth
The Rotary Club of Grangemouth was founded in 1949 and has continued to serve the local community in Grangemouth and surrounding district.
Our Mother Club is Falkirk and strong links still exist between the clubs, with a joint meeting held every year.
The club currently meets in the Leapark Hotel Grangemouth, and previously met in the Grange Manor Hotel and Galloway's Restaurant in the Town.
The Club continues to thrive with the current membership of 37, and has an active programme throughout the year.
Over the years a few members have served in positions at District and National level. John Kenny was District Governor in 1984, RIBI President in 1993 and Rotary International President in 2009-10. Bill Ramage served as District Secretary and Joe Gallacher as District Treasurer.
To commemorate John's year as RI President a water harvesting project was set up. This project has expanded and a recent communication indicated that there are now 90 such schemes in the area. John is a very good ambasador for Rotary and for the Grangemouth Club in particular.
The Club supports many local charities throughout the year. The annual Santa Float collection and the charity Sportsman's Dinner contribute to Strathcarron Hospice and CHAS. This year,2018, some £31,000 was raised from the Sportsman's Dinner.
