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 in 2004.  
THE GENTLEMEN OF THE ROTARY CLUB OF BLANTYRE  SCOTLAND 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.
