The Rotary Club of Duns recently had a visit from Kate Keter, District Governor of Rotary District 1020, South of Scotland.

Kate had the pleasant duty of presenting special badges to three members, Ken Candlish, David Cochrane and Grant Stephen, to celebrate their membership of the club since its foundation in 1975. The club’s fourth founder member, Jack Cameron, was unfortunately unable to attend.

Kate also heard the club confirm its decision to donate £500 to the ‘Heart for Duns’ campaign group which is looking at ways to turn the Volunteer Hall into a first class community asset.

Rotarian Andy Lester gave a short presentation of all the recent work of Duns Rotary. Duns is the biggest Borders Rotary club and recently admitted its first female member. It celebrates its Ruby Jubilee in 2015.

District Governor Kate replied by emphasising this year’s Rotary International President’s Motto: Engage Rotary, change lives. This year District 1020 will continue to support the Rotary Foundation End Polio Now campaign and the Scottish charity Mary’s Meals.
