 Over 60 members, partners and guests attended the twentieth anniversary dinner of the Aberdeen Balgownie club in the Craighaar Hotel Bucksburn on 18th May. The Balgownie club is based in Bridge of Don and takes its name from the historic 14th century "Brig o' Balgownie" which spans the River Don.

Its membership is drawn from residents and business people in Aberdeen's largest suburb in the north of the city, and the rural district around.  Celebrations were organized by Club Senior Vice President Moyra Cowie, a Lecturer in Sports Management at Aberdeen College, who showed her presentational and organisational skills by compering a take- off of the former "This is your life" TV programme for the club since its "birth" in 1993, interspersed with quizzes and reminiscences from the members, and reminders of the many projects the club had participated in.

Among the guests were Eric Rasmussen, President of Aberdeen St Nicholas club 20 years ago and also the current President Jim Couper, Aberdeen St Nicholas being the "mother club" and Doug Westland of Ellon Rotary Club club who was the District Extension Officer at the time the club was founded.  

The birthday cake was cut by Founder President Leslie Roger.
