The new Rotary year 22/23 has made an excellent start.  Our first speaker Helena Parson gave a presentation on saving the Wild Cat, a project that is now running at the Highland Wildlife Park, an amazing programme that is not just limited to Scotland as it works with the European National Trust and several other organisations.  If you want to know more visit the project at the Park.

 

The second speaker of the year was Hannah Mitchell who is highly involved in bringing a programme of 'Real Life Education' to High Schools in the region.

Topics include Managing Money,  Career Decisions,  People Skills and Health and Wellbeing.

The Club also ran a successful coach trip with 54 attending to the Royal Military Tattoo stopping at the Charleston Inn for a good meal on the way.  We have also recently manned the gates at the Grantown Show and supported the Nethy Games
