A gala day, courtesy of Lord and Lady Dalhousie, will be held in Brechin Castle on June 10.
This will be open to men and women of pension age in the county.
Actually, there are 10,000 - the committee think that they could well have 2000 at the gala.
Six pupils of Brechin high School were whisked off to police headquarters at Forfar on Tuesday forenoon and spent the rest of the day there. But not for any misdemeanour! It was part of their award competition sponsored by the “Daily Record”.

Since their pageant day in 1990 the local Round Tablers have worked incessantly to raise the funds needed to provide the Den of Adventure in the Public Park.
The Den of Adventure is nearing completion with the official opening ceremony taking place on April 4.
The project was originally conceived by a Round Table member when the subject of community projects was under discussion.
Having obtained estimates and after consultation with Angus District Council the target figure was set at £15,000, Angus District Council agreed to match any sum raised.
A number of fund raising activities took place to raise the funds needed for the project.
