Sadly the Rotary Club of Blantyre, Scotland
now only lives on in good memories.
This cheeky wee poem appeared in the web-site of the
Rotary Club of Blantyre, Scotland, 2004.
OF THE ROTARY CLUB OF
At the Redstones, once a week
if it's Thursday they'll take a seat.
For good company they'll not be beat,
and what's more, they sure can eat.
If the Speakers' Convener remembers,
a speaker will then address the members.
With topic worthy, or full of fun
the evening's magic has begun.
The Boxing Night pulls in the cash
to fund the Old Folks' Christmas bash,
and other things throughout the year
that local people might hold dear.
But let's be clear, that once a year
the gentlemen will watch and cheer.
When boxing calls the members out
it's not to fight but just to shout.
The gentlemen of the Blantyre Rotary
should take their rightful place in history.
Each a man of many parts
and certainly not a bunch of old farts.
