ROTARY CLUB Thursday was the club assembly night, where convenors advised members of their plans for the forthcoming new session. Assistant governor Brenda Waugh brought greetings from the district. She said the new year's theme would be Rotary Connects the World and she asked clubs to help in their local communities and beyond. The president elect Andrew Murray reflected on his own journey in Rotary and suggested that the Rotary Club of Motherwell and Wishaw partner with one of the local clubs to develop community relationships that local people would identify with. Katrina Gibbons, the new senior vice president, expressed her hopes for a revitalised Furniture For Families and her committee would now be working to present a programme for the members. James Gibbons, the new international convenor, spoke of Lendwithcare which is a revolutionary way for rotarians to help people in developing countries to transform their future.

It enables people to find their own route out of poverty and support their families and will be supported by the Motherwell and a Wishaw club.

The winners of the monthly numbers club draw were Katrina Gibbons, Tom Agnew and Ronnie Moore.
