Lochaber Rotarians and their families and friends met in the Alexandra Hotel, Fort William, earlier this month to celebrate and reflect on 70 years of fellowship, friendship and support for a huge range of local community projects and international causes.
Club president Clive Talbot, in a well researched talk, reminded everyone of the club’s 70 years of activity following its inaugural meeting at the Grand Hotel on December 9, 1949, before proposing a toast to the club.
President-Elect Richard Baxter thanked him for his absorbing talk and invited members and their partners and friends to drink a toast to the good work of Rotary International and its founding aim of ‘Rotary and Peace the World Over’.
Guests of the club for the evening were Douglas Small, President of the Rotary Club of Oban, and his wife Judith. Mr Small said: ‘We thoroughly enjoyed the evening and were made most welcome.
‘The meal, music by Paula MacAskill and the accommodation at the Alexandra Hotel were superb. President Clive gave a most interesting and informative speech about the history of the Lochaber Rotary Club – a very successful and most enjoyable evening.’
