Seven Primary Schools put forward their teams of four bright young things to make this year's Primary School Quiz yet another closely fought tussle.
We are forever amazed at how much knowledge these youngsters have about all sorts of topics and this year was no different. Last year's winners, Our Lady of the Mission, were replaced by a new name on the shield as Carolside Primary took the honours.
Our incoming President Margaret MacDonald was on hand to present the shield while quiz organiser and question writer, Rotarian Peter Daniels looked on. Many thanks to all seven schools and their teachers for coming along and making it such a great competition. The primary schools represented were Busby, Carolside, Eaglesham, Mearns, Our Lady of the Mission, St John's and St Marks's.
Special thanks to Our Lady of the Mission for hosting the event, all the teachers, the Rotarians who invigilated and last, but not least, the children for their efforts.
We were delighted that the weather behaved on Wednesday 3rd June as 15 teams gathered at Whitecraigs Golf Club to take part in our annual charity golf AM AM. The course was in superb condition and the club are to be congratulated on this as well as thanked for hosting the competition.
The winning teams were - 1st & 2nd East Renfrewshire Council, 3rd Turnkey Infrastructure Solutions Limited. Other prizes including 2 for nearest the pin and 1 for the longest drive as well as many raffle prizes including a 4 ball at the prestigious Archerfield Golf Club.
After their game, every team was treated to an excellent 3 course meal with wine, followed by coffee... all up to the usual excellent standard of the Whitecraigs catering team.
And the net result? Nearly £4,500 raised! Well done to everyone who aided and supported the event.
