The AGM on 10th April saw the retiral of Zoreen from the chair of the Civic Society and her handover to Ian Dods. The vice-chairman, John Webster, spoke of the work done by Zoreen during four years as chairman. He then presented Zoreen with flowers and wine from the members as a token of appreciation for the commitment shown by her over the past four years as chairman and many other years as a member of the society.
Zoreen gave up a lot of her time over the past four years to the Society by organising speakers for meetings, chairing the executive committee, taking part in various sub-committees, representing the Society on other bodies, and presenting the awards made by the Society over the years. As if that were not enough Zoreen was very active on the social side organising the Xmas dinner, the Main Guard spring party and other activities.
It is no exaggeration to say that were it not for people with the dedication of Zoreen, organisations like the Civic Society would cease to exist.
