Joint Celebration of 100 years service in Banchory

Banchory Lions Club was chartered in 1990 and this year celebrates it’s 25th anniversary. Some 50 years earlier in 1940 the Scotland Citizens Advice Bureau (CAB) was founded so it seemed entirely appropriate to celebrate with Banchory CAB.  Of course 25 years of Lions and 75 years of CAB gives 100 years of service.

To celebrate, the two organisations chose to run a quiz night which was well attended and supported by the two neighbouring Lions Clubs in Aberdeen. In addition District Governor Lion Andrew Kerr Sutherland and Edinburgh Lion Lachlan MacKay drove north to take part.

DG Andrew’s raffle prize!

From the DG’s point of view it was an evening of mixed fortunes having failed miserably in the quiz he managed to win a selection of beauty products in the raffle to repair the damage!

Banchory Lions Club was formed by a group of 21 enthusiastic local people committed to serving the Community of Banchory and supporting local Community Organisations, Individuals, Clubs and Charities. They celebrated their ‘25th Anniversary’ with the same enthusiasm as their founder members and continue to work to help others, young and elderly, who are less fortunate than themselves and make their community a better place.

Ready for the 100th Anniversary Quiz

They also have lots of fun doing it, meeting together each month for social events with family, friends and other Lions clubs within the Aberdeen and Aberdeenshire area. Two of their remaining Charter members are still very active within the club having survived 25 years of service!

Well done Banchory Lions for reaching 25 years and keep up the service. Congratulations!
