At the conclusion of another Rotary year on Thursday 30 June 2022, President Douglas Irving at the annual Dalbeattie & District Rotary Presidential Chain Handover commented that the year had seen the weekly meetings format change from Meetings on Zoom initially screened to members’ homes, to Hybrid Meetings in the King’s Arms Hotel, Dalbeattie, with some members meeting in the Hotel and others joining them online, to more recent Thursday 6 p.m. meetings in the Hotel exclusively, with members meeting face to face. He thanked all who had helped with this.
During the evening, Douglas passed the President’s Chain of Office to John Rowland who lives near Colvend.
Douglas summarised the wide range of activities and community outreach the Club had been involved in during 2021/2022, all as detailed on the Club’s Website.
The Rotary Year 2022/2023 under John’s Presidency will see a new Environment Brief pursued by the Club which has already planted over 100 native trees at the Dalbeattie Learning Campus, with more to be provided on the same site by Rotarians in 2022/2023.
