Description
Bronze plaque made to commemorate the 10th anniversary of the charter of the Polmont Rotary Club. Plaque has Rotary symbol and text on it in relief.

It was originally mounted on a concrete plinth in front of a lime tree (planted to commemorate the 10th anniversary of the Rotary - 27 May 1974) outside the Inchyra Hotel, Grangemouth. The plaque was stolen in the late 1990s and was discovered at an auction in late 2016.

The Rotary symbol was a wagon wheel in its early days to symbolise civilisation and movement. In 1922, it was decided that all Rotary clubs should adopt a single design as the exclusive emblem of Rotarians. In 1923, the present gear wheel, with 24 cogs and six spokes was adopted by the "Rotary International Association".
