The culmination of a year of celebrations to mark the 60th anniversary of one of the town’s oldest clubs took place this week with a gala dinner.

The event, held at Rothes Halls on Friday evening, was the climax to 12 months of special events to mark six decades in the town for Glenrothes Art Club.

Members past and present gathered to enjoy what was described as a “lavish but relaxed” evening which included Gillian Parsons, On At Fife’s cultural development officer as their honorary
guest.

According to Lillian Sloan, club president, the evening was a fitting climax to round off what had undoubtedly been a memorable year for the historic club.

“A lot of people have worked extremely hard throughout the year to make the programme of events a reality and the evening was a perfect way to round off a historic year for us,’’ Lillian told the Gazette.

“Hopefully with the likes of some of the events such as the lecture evenings, the pop up shop, art exhibition and work with various youth groups has helped reinvigorate the club and remind people of its standing within the town,” she added.

“It’s reinvented the club to a large extent and has certainly moved us on to a new level. Here’s to the next 60 years.”
