In association with Perth and Kinross Music Service, we presented "A Little Light Music" in St Ninian's Cathedral.

The music was excellent, and the event raised almost £680 for PKAVS and Perth and Kinross music groups. Our thanks go to the young musicians, their music tutors, St. Ninian's helpers, and to the audience for their generous donations.


Planting 5000 Crocuses

Planting Crocuses

In October we planted 5000 purple crocus corms. The Rotary Purple4Polio campaign has been planting crocuses across the country to raise awareness of our effort to eradicate polio.

The colour purple represents the purple dye used to mark the finger of each child in mass immunisation programs across the world.

Our crocuses went to Millenium Park in Kinnoull at a community event, the Walled Garden, several care homes, and a children's nursery. We were helped by residents and staff at the care homes, as well as community volunteers, and everyone seemed to enjoy the experience.


Life Saving Equipment at the Royal George Hotel

Defibrillator at the Royal George Hotel

We have equipped the Royal George Hotel with an Automated External Defibrillator (AED).

This device can make the difference between life and death for someone having a cardiac arrest. Time is critical in this condition, and many public buildings are being equipped with AEDs. Ideally they are used by people with instruction in the device, but they can be used successfully without training. This one will be kept at reception, where it will be available for vistors to the hotel and people nearby. Rotarian Ian Dargie, a first aid instructor, will be training Royal George staff and Rotarians to use it.

In the picture, Ian Dargie and President Gail Mackay present the defibrillator to hotelier Eddie Anderson.


Meetings

We meet: Every Wednesday from 12:45pm to 1:45pm.
In: The Royal George Hotel,
