Spring 2018 

We have been continuing to maintain the flowers at Shawfair Station. We have bought and planted up some half barrels and attempted to keep on top of the weeding of the main beds as well as planting 20,000 crocuses as part of the End Polio awareness campaign! 
Under our Pursue Your Dream initiative, we were able to give a donation to local lass Gemma Yoxall to buy some essential equipment to help her take up a place on her performance course. She attempted to teach Gordon some dance moves, but he was happier watching! We look forward to hearing how Gemma gets on, and of course seeing her on the big stage or screen soon!
We also once again sponsored the long service to volunteering award at the Midlothian Volunteer Awards. President Atholl was pleased to present this to Fiona Milton for her continued service at Highbank Day Centre.
We continue to support Storehouse, a local foodbank charity, and Smalls for All, a charity which helps supply African women and children with underwear.
We have a new Global Scholar, Molly, to support. She is from Texas and is studying at Edinburgh University under a Rotary scholarship.
At the end of last year, we had a very successful charity wine tasting, and hope to reperat this success in summer 2018.
In January, one of our members and her daughter went as part of an international rotary group to administer polio vaccinations in the slums of Delhi
