Sept 6th: PRESIDENT’S NIGHT – Bill Izett

Last Thursday the President Bill Izett gave two entirely different displays.

The first was the social history of Clackmannan which began with some of the history of the town and included places of interest as well as activities such as the Boys Brigade and Scouts. Looking back there were postcards and covers from the days of coal mining, the textile industry and shipping.

His second display was based on the Ark as in the Bible. It began with the construction of the Ark through to the story of the dove which was released and returned bearing a twig in its beak. The stamps showed the animals which were on board in twos with many humorous comments about them. Finally there were a few items about the WWF and National Trust and their work for animal welfare.

The vote of thanks was proposed by the Vice President Walter Bruce.
