Rotary Club of West Fife - Community and Vocational Service Committee report for Rotary Year 2019-20 for the Club AGM on 19th May 2020
Like all avenues of Rotary service and organisations worldwide, the current and ongoing Covid 19 crisis has had a major and just a few short weeks ago a scarcely believable effect on Community and Vocational service during the latter part of this Rotary Year.
During the first half of the Rotary Year, we worked hard on continuing the excellent work of the previous Committee in trying to make the Club as visible as possible within our local Community.
Assistance was provided to the 62nd Fife Scout Group, a local school pupil Erin Hodgson for her year with Project Trust India and the Fife Festival of Music.
In addition, we repeated the laying of Poppy Wreaths at 4 Remembrance Day ceremonies along with assistance with the Poppy Scotland appeal and once again supported the Salvation Army Christmas Toy appeal.
Support was given to the Culross Community Garden project, following a very enjoyable and informative visit to the Garden, and we have recently received very good feedback from the volunteers involved in the project.
A Dementia Friends session was held in Crossford Village Hall in March, following a talk on the subject at one of our weekly meetings.
The Covid 19 crisis has put paid to any involvement this year in local Galas, Fetes and Kids Out, but we are currently providing assistance to the Valleyfield Pantry Club and the Salvation Army while actively pursuing other local causes that we may be able to support.
Many thanks to everyone who has helped with the Community and Vocational work this year, which is basically the whole Club, but with particular thanks to fellow Committee Members Ewan, Ken Cowe, Barry, Helen and Alan.
