Alford & District Rotary Club inducted their first corporate members last month to help foster relationships with local institutions.
On Tuesday, August 25, Alford Academy and the Grampian Transport Museum were inducted into the Rotary Club of Alford & District.
Club Member Clive Marsden said: “It’s a new initiative across rotary worldwide, aimed at building bridges with companies we work with.”
The Club supports the Academy and the Transport Museum in a number of ventures, such as by helping to provide young people with leadership and other life skills, and by providing support to the museum’s Young Engineers Club.
Similarly, the Transport Museum supports the Club, such as by providing the venue for the forthcoming Alford KT Bike Run (on September 12), and the Academy has an Interact Club (young Rotary), and runs a very successful Young Musician competition each year.
Also inducted into the the club were Academy Head Teacher Moira Milne, and Grampian Transport Museum Curator, Mike Ward, MBE.
Rotary Club President Neil Robinson said: “We welcome both the Academy and the Transport Museum into Rotary and we look forward to continuing to work with these two successful organisations.”
District Governor Michael Halley welcomed the new members and highlighted the important role Rotary is playing in the task of eradicating Polio worldwide.
