Mearns Probus Club

The club held their last meeting of 2013 in the Crown Inn, Laurencekirk with President Lawrie Smith, chairing the AGM.

After the usual welcome, apologies etc the minutes of the 2012 AGM were read and approved. The election of committee members for the next year was then held and the results were: President - Ian M Bell, Vice President - Malcolm McCoig, Immediate Past President - Lawrie Smith, Treasurer - Ian Davidson, Secretary - Ian M Bell, Committee Members - Stuart Craig and Dennis Bell.

After nearly 20 years as secretary, Sandy Dunn has retired. His health during the past year has led to his decision to stand down and the president hoped that it will now improve and thanked him on behalf of the club for his many years guiding the club, as well as acting as Treasurer. Past President Charles Crowther, who was 100 years old in October, was honoured with a Life Membership.

The year finishes with Mens and Ladies Clubs pre-Christmas dinner in the Dickson Hall, with catering by Castleton Catering.
