Club Wins District International Award 2010


The Duns contingent at October's District Conference in Aviemore got something of a shock at the opening session when President John was called forward to receive the John Kenny Cup for International Impact - and to be given it by the very man himself, Immediate Past President of Rotary International John Kenny.  John said "I was speechless, but very pleasantly surprised - and delighted that I didn't drop the cup!"
