Oban Rotary Club held it's 67th annual Charter Dinner on Friday 11th November at the Royal Hotel, the charter having been granted on 25th November, 1949. As indicated in our picture, the event was well attended with all concerned of the view that it was a very enjoyable evening.
The intention was to have a highland hospitality night and the top table was piped in by young Emma Hill, from the OHS Pipe Band, who was later supported by Mrs Morag MacNeill, who sang two well known Gaelic songs to much applause. The principal guest, Roderick McCuish, Area Chairman, Argyll and Bute Council delivered a very humorous and entertaining speech. Roddy was also generous in his praise of Oban Rotary's charitable contributions to local and international good clauses and called for a closer relationship between the Council and Oban Rotary, given the latter's broad experience which is readily available to the community. A unique and well received toast to the club was delivered by Assistant Governor, Iain White, who attended with his wife Margaret.
A raffle was also held and £260 was raised for "Children in Need".
The evening was excellently chaired by Club President Graham Fraser.
