A special tribute was paid to Lesley Hart MBE at the AGM as she stood down from her position as Honorary Patron after 8 years.
John Parkhill explained that Lesley had played a unique role in founding, promoting and supporting the Association over its 30 year history. Most recently, she has performed her role as Honorary Patron with great skill, based on her remarkable professional career and a wealth of knowledge of the Association’s history and organisation which has been of great benefit to 3Ls Members, Management Council and Club Office Bearers. He expressed a huge debt of gratitude to Lesley on behalf of the Association for her vision and commitment to our organisation.
At the AGM, John Parkhill, outgoing 3Ls President presented a cheque for £4,000 to Douglas Wilson of the GCHS as a donation towards the charity, which offers caravan holidays in Wemyss Bay and Blair Atholl to disadvantaged children and families. Mr Wilson explained that the donation would meet the costs of a caravan for 15 months allowing 100 families to enjoy a seaside holiday. John thanked 3Ls members and Clubs for all their efforts over the year in raising an impressive sum.
The 29th AGM was held on Wednesday 16th May, 2018 when members attending enjoyed a buffet lunch before the meeting and a chance to enjoy the sunshine from the balcony on the roof of the McCance building.
John Parkhill handed over the President’s Chain of Office to Diane Campbell and wished her well for her term in office.
