A Long Serving Secretary

I was rather taken with this wee curling stone, a presentation made to the retiring secretary of Argyll Province, Jimmy Brown.

Jimmy has been in the job for thirty years! On Saturday, after speeches by Douglas Currie and Royal Club President Pat Edington, he was declared to be an Honorary and Honourable Member of the Province, and was presented with the wooden curling stone adorned with the badges of those Province clubs which were obtainable. What a splendid idea!

Jimmy plans to retire when a suitable volunteer can be found!
