15th Sept 2018 - 50th Anniversary Gala Dinner

The Rotary Club of Cambuslang celebrates 50 years...


The Rotary Club of Cambuslang celebrated its 50th year with a Gala dinner at the Kings Park Hotel on Saturday 15th September. The event was attended by just over 70 current and former Rotarians, their families and other guests included two of our founder members from 1969, Gordon King and Alastair Moodie. Also attending were Rotary members from our mother club Rutherglen, including John Leslie, son of the very first President of Cambuslang, James Leslie, and members from the Rotary Club of East Kilbride. 
Guests were welcomed with a glass of bubbly and there was time to mingle and renew old friendships before enjoying the 4 course gala dinner. There was a display of club memorabilia, trophies and albums to browse,  a slideshow of photos from the last 50 years to view and a colourful mosaic of the many club banners collected over the past years.
The evening was chaired by Club President Robert Dickie, who introduced the main speaker Jim Ross, our 1230 District Governor. Jim spoke about how Rotary has changed, especially in more recent years but still remains a powerful force in todays world as can be seen from the impact of Polio Plus. There were also toasts from Barry Toshner, President of the Rutherglen Club and Iain Macpherson Past President of the East Kilbride Club.
The evening included a special moment when a Paul Harris Fellowship was presented to Past President and former member Kenny Wilson in recognition of all his work within Rotary and for his many years volunteering and fundraising for CHAS, the Bridgeton Burns Club and other local charities. 
Although this wasn’t a fundraising night thanks to the generosity of all the guests a donations box raised £470 for Polio Plus.  The evening concluded in traditional fashion with the Rotary toast - Rotary and Peace the World over.
