Following the AGM, secretary Ian Bell gave a talk and presentation on a visit made to the Black Watch Museum at Balhousie Castle in Perth, earlier in the year along with other fellow members.

The museum is open to the public and an excellent restaurant and gift shop are adjacent to the castle, making it a worthwhile place to visit and enjoy.

Members were reminded of the Christmas Dinner to be held in the Dickson Hall, Laurencekirk, at noon on December 16 as guests of the Ladies Probus Club.
