Now I have had a very difficult decision to make in awarding the Ken Young Shield. The only reason it was difficult, was that I had a lot of support during my year.

There are a few that have really excelled, but one that I have to say has been involved in multiple activities.

So after some serious consideration I have chosen a very worthy recipient.

I would therefore like to announce that it is my pleasure to present Robert Haig with the Ken Young Shield.  Robert has been involved in various activities during the year – some by choice and some due to circumstances.

Robert has been our membership convenor, has been in the New Generations team and has also taken on some of the Club Service & Admin functions due to Barry’s illness and LOA.  Robert has also done a huge job very capably, in dealing with, and managing the generous donation provided by the family of a founder member, ensuring he looked very carefully at the candidates and that the right choices were made for the right reasons and most importantly in line with the family wishes.

In addition to all his work in looking at the merits or otherwise of the candidates to benefit from the fund,  Robert has made all the arrangements for my visits with him to make the cheque presentations, and often did the photography, as well as provide the details to Douglas for press publication etc.

Robert has of course kept the family informed on the progress, and that too is very much appreciated.

During the year Robert has been a great member of the council, and his input is always helpful and wise, for the club and myself. Additonally Robert has assisted at many of our events including some very recent events such as Crossford Gala, and the Torryburn Beach Cleanup.

My thanks to you Robert - CLEARLY SERVICE ABOVE  SELF.
