The Annual general meeting of the Rotary Club of Aboyne and Upper Deeside was made more special by the induction of the club’s newest member Kerry Ritchie.

Kerry moved to the area last year and has attended club meetings over the last couple of months. She moved to Deeside from Kent where she had a career in primary health care management.

Kerry said; “It’s great to be part of the club and I’m looking forward to serving our communities”.

The club has been holding informal social gatherings in both Aboyne and Ballater and spreading the word about the work of Rotary and the wide range of activities they do to support local and international causes. The club aims to recruit four of five new members each year. Anyone interested in learning more about the work of the Club is welcome to contact Mike Powell on 013398 86369.
