The Rotary Club of Oban held its annual Christmas Carol Concert on Sunday 16th December at the Corran Halls with the programme being supported, as usual, by Norman Nicholson as conductor of the Bach Choir.
The event, which drew its customary large audience, was well supported by the primary schools , local choirs with seasonal readings from various individuals which included the Head Boy and Head Girl from Oban High School. Particular regard was paid to Pastor Stuart Lawson from the Baptist Church for his uplifting words.
The Oban and Lorne Strathspey and Reel Society also played a number of Christmas tunes to much applause.
The running of the concert was very much in the hands of the many Rotarians present and it was generally agreed that this was one of the smoothest to date with much credit going to Convener, Peter Tosh.
In thanking all who had participated Oban Rotary President Iain Mac Intyre emphasised that this was essentially a community event signalling the commencement of the festive period with donations to the concert (£658) going to local charities/ good causes.
