Charter Night

The Club held its 68th Charter Dinner at the Perle Hotel on Friday 24th November, the Charter having been granted to the club on 25th November, 1949.

As our pictures show, the Dinner was well attended with a good number of quests present who included Oban Rotary's District Governor Garry Louttit and his wife Christine. The top table and quests were piped in by Emma Hill from the OHS Youth Pipe Band and later the company was entertained by Oban Rotary's Young Musician of the Year Katie Houston who played the flute accompanied by her mother Joanna on the piano.

In his toast to the Club, District Governor Garry mentioned specially the many activities which the members now undertake in support of the local community and he praised the membership for being so active and successful. The principal speaker was local man Eamon Arthur from the Oban Speakers Club who spoke of the changes in farming since he was a boy working on a farm in the North East of Scotland. Eamons speech, which was well received by the audience, was delivered in a very professional manner interspersed with many humorous asides and anecdotes. A comprehensive Vote of Thanks to all concerned was delivered by Senior Vice President, Iain Mac Intyre. The evening was expertly compared by President Tommy McQuade.

A raffle raised the sum of £326 with the proceeds going to Hope Kitchen.
