The Ythan Community Council presented Alexander (Sandy) Milne with a picture in recognition of his 42 years of service to the community council.
In this time, he has held roles of Chairperson, Secretary, Treasurer and raised funds for the local area.
The gifted picture was taken by Sandy at Haddo Lake, and was passed on by his wife Betty to the community council in order to print on canvas.
The Ythan Community Council would like to wish Sandy all the best in his retirement.
Sandy is pictured with Elaine Jones (TCC treasurer) and Anouk Kahanov-Kloppert (YCC Vice-Chair and YCC coordinator).
