The club's Christmas programme and future projects were discussed. The club thanked all Rotarians who had participated in the Armistice ceremonies at South Queensferry and Kirkliston. This was followed by a Special General meeting in which the nomination of Jim McCulloch for the post of club president in Rotary Year 1019-2020 was approved by the members. President Graham congratulated Jim on his appointment. Craig MacKenzie was appointed Secretary for the next Rotary year and Stuart Ridge agreed to stay on as Foundation Convener.

The event raised £27,000 to be shared between the charities. Scottish Conservative Party leader Ruth Davidson won the competition.
