Deacon Dr Iain Lennox Elected on Choosing Day
The Cordiners were delighted to elect the distinguished
geriatrician, Dr. Iain Lennox to be their Deacon for 2017-2018 on
Choosing Day, Friday 22nd September 2017.
The Late Deacon, Dr Adrian Pierotti was warmly thanked for his
work for the Incorporation in 2016-2017 and presented with the Auld
Deacon's Medal. As Dr Pierotti was completing a second term as
Deacon, his original medal was simply augmented by a bar in
the appropriate form of a shoe.
The Late Collector, Dr Iain Lennox, attended the Buoyed Up
Awards Ceremony in the Barony Hall on 14th June 2017, when children
from four primary schools in North and east Glasgow gave a series
of verbal and musical presentations outlining their experiences on
the Buoyed Up Programme, run by the Sir Thomas Lipton Foundation,
supported in 2016 by the Incorporation of Cordiners. The children
had clearly gained greatly in confidence and knowledge of nautical
matters, and the hall was decorated with a series of paintings and
short articles by the children. The Late Collector passed on the
best wishes of the Incorporation to the Foundation officials and
encouraged them in their excellent work.
