A diamond dinner was held for members of the Rotary Club of Louth at Kenwick Golf Club on Friday April 17.

The event was celebrating the 60th (Diamond) Charter Anniversary with members and guests representing a record number of 19 clubs, including its twin Clubs of Ry in Denmark and Apt-Cavillion en Luberon in France.

President John Macdonald commented on the service the Club had provided to the local community over the years and introduced the local guest speaker Colonel Stuart Williams who spoke in particular of the work the army does as a disciplined and trained force in the communities to which it is sent all round the world.

President Macdonald added: “It was a great occasion, 19 clubs at a charter is a real achievement these days and we did very well to welcome our twin clubs too.”

The Rotarians continued their work on Sunday , teaming up with Louth Interskill to take a coach of people with helpers to the Rotary District Annual Disabled Games at Scunthorpe. The club is also now looking ahead to organising the town’s bonfire night with Louth Lions.
