A CLACKS club all about “service above self” has launched a fresh recruitment drive.

Alloa Rotary Club is looking for more women and men of all ages to join its ranks with the recruitment drive launching as incoming president John Scott took the reins.

John has taken the helm for 2021-22 from past-president Geoff Storer as the new Rotary year began.

The duo was seen out and about last week with their recruitment banners with John stepping up to the challenge after Geoff handed over the venerable presidential chain of office.

John said: “New Rotarians are most welcome at this time of change and challenge.

“Local people will see our banners across Clackmannanshire inviting them to enquire about joining – that’s women as well as men, by the way, and all ages are welcome.

“Right now we gather weekly by Zoom like so many other organisations but soon we will be able to hold events and give service in person and we can’t wait.”

Established in 1948, the club has been serving the Wee County for more than 70 years.

Most recently, as reported in the Advertiser last month, Rotarians Scott Doyle, Graham McGirr, Iain Pryde, Ramsay Blair and Dougie Johnson scaled the rocky Law Hill rising at the head of Tillicoultry Glen five successive times in just one day.

The effort raised funds for the Ochils Mountain Rescue Team and an international eye charity in Global Sight Solutions.

President John added: “Rotary is not about meetings, it is about service above self.”
