The Oban and Lorn District Seniors Citizens ("OLDS") annual Christmas Lunch was held on Monday, 11th December, 2017 at the Oban Bay Hotel, part of the Crerar Hotels Group and once again a full house was in attendance.
The Crerar Hotels Trust are the main sponsors of this very successful event which in one way or another has been in existence for well over 100 years. Oban Rotary also contribute to the financial cost along with members providing "taxi services" for the participants to and from the event. A very enjoyable lunch was had by all with entertainment provided by Neil MacKay, Michael Garvin and Tom Adams. Raffle prizes were provided by D & A Munn and Tommy MacQuade, President of Oban Rotary with each participant receiving a "special envelope" and it was generally agreed that this event goes from strength to strength and embodies what the Christmas spirit is all about. Rotarians Graham MacQueen and Frank Walton are leading members of the organising committee.
To qualify for the Christmas lunch one only needs to be in receipt of a state pension or in the case of a couple one of two will be enough to qualify. Places are allocated on a "first come, first served basis
