AGM 16th April, 2013

Colin Beattie completed his term of office as President of the Royalty Burns Club for years 2012 & 2013.

The committee met for their AGM on the 16th April 2013 and thanked Colin for the way he took the club forward during the last two years particularly for instigating and creating the official website for the Royalty Burns Club with pictures and history from past years.

Colin believes the new website will attract interested followers of Robert Burns to join our club and thereby ensuring new members in future years.

Colin was also thanked for bringing back the Royalty annual golf day and it was agreed that it should be continued in the future.

The AGM was attended by Colin Rice Treasurer, Miller Armstrong Secretary, Ronnie Bulloch past President, Walter Glen past President, John Gilligan Vice President, Colin Beattie President and the years business was heard, ratified and recorded.

The appointment of John Gilligan from Vice President to President was done with great aplomb and all agreed the future of the Royalty was in safe hands.

The appointment of the Vice President was then brought in by a unanimous vote and again all agreed that Gary Louttit’s position in the license trade would indeed further and preserve the good name of the club.

Colin’s final words were to wish John well during his term of office and all present concurred with words of support.  The fact that over the last 2 years John was made Managing Director of Tennent Caledonian Brewery, will most certainly add stature to the position of President of the Royalty Burns.
