Visit of District Governor Lindsay Craig

Thu, Jul 13th 2017 at 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

DG Lindsay visits Hawick as part of his tour of District 1020's Clubs


A good turnout of members attended last week's meeting of the Rotary Club with President Scott Elliot in the chair.  The District Governor Lindsay Craig of Currie/Balerno Rotary Club visited the club accompanied by Derek Douglas.  Derek was familiar with Hawick as he was District Manager of British Relay in the 1960's and recalled emotional visits to the Hut at St Leonards at the Common Riding ceremonies.  Lindsay brought greetings from Rotary International's President Ian H S Riseley from Melbourne, Australia and highlighted his message to Rotarians world-wide as "Rotary - making a difference" which can be applied to all aspects of Rotary.  This resulted in an interesting discussion session appreciated by the Club.  The highlight of the evening was the induction of Tommy Stevenson into the club as a full member after which he gave an excellent acceptance reply.  Tommy is well-known through his work with the Boys Brigade movement, Teviothead Parish Church as well as his life-time contribution to wrestling when his professional name was Scott Thomson.
