AGM 2019/20

Despite the global pandemic an annual meeting of the society is necessary so that we can file the relevant documents with the Scottish Charities Regulator before the end of the year. As a physical meeting is not permitted we are holding the Annual General Meeting by email. 

We will circulate the documents to existing members (anyone who has been a member since September 2019) by email.  If you are not a member but would like to take part in the AGM please contact us to join the society. Membership is £5 a year.

VENUE CHANGE Craic & Cèilidh – 19 October

PLEASE NOTE THIS WAS IN 2019 AND NOT 2020!

Sutherland Estates used to own dozens of sporting lodges in the county and John MacKay, Tordarroch has gathered together pictures of them (new and old). Some were grand, others quite simple, the variety of architecture and location is outstanding.

Even if you have seen his slide show before it has been updated and more pictures added. A fascinating night is expected.

Musicians – please come along, we’d all love to hear you play!

Saturday 28 September

PLEASE NOTE THIS WAS IN 2019 AND NOT 2020!

Saturday sees our (somewhat belated) Annual General Meeting.
The agenda is below as are the minutes from last year’s AGM. We won’t be printing them in order to save paper, but will project them during the meeting.

The short AGM will be followed by a slide show of “new old Rogart pictures” which have been donated or collected over the last year. There will be a raffle, light refreshments and a house cèilidh. We will be collecting membership fees and issuing membership cards.

Please come along with your voice or instrument, bring a raffle prize, and find out what has been going on since our last AGM.

Rogart 150 – Craic & Cèilidh, Friday 12 October

Our next event will celebrate the 150th anniversary of the railway’s arrival in Rogart. A must for anyone who would like to see what the station once looked like, the numerous staff that were necessary to run this busy place and its twists and turns through time.

The short talk accompanied by photographs will be followed by an informal house cèilidh.
