President’s Report – March 2017

i Mar 26th No Comments by


I thank all those working for the Club during the year- Elected, Appointed and general helpers – your
efforts are invaluable when creating the opportunities for all members to share in great camaraderie and fun.

I’m very pleased to welcome our newest members – Liesl Shipard with Ricky (958) and Charles Holland with Dee (959) – please make them feel welcome.

At the AGM during the 28th March 2017 Social meeting, all Committee positions will be called and
a nomination for Life membership will be voted on.

We do need some extra assistance to help Brian our Treasurer due to his work requirements and also in the Environment role for the next 9-12 months.

We’ll also enjoy some wine tasting and there’ll be a silent auction of a rubbish carrier for the rear of a vehicle.

Membership renewals have been due since January and should have been completed by the end of February with the annual fee of $80, BSB 035047 Account 255297 – please include your Mitsi number.

The Committee has authorized a series of new ‘shorter’ Club email addresses – they should start appearing in this CatChat.

A reminder of the upcoming Polish Hill event (12th to 19th April 2017) which focuses on meeting members, socialising and maybe some 4wd activity for those (like me) who can’t help themselves.

ps.I was driving this morning when I pulled up next to an RAA van. The driver was sobbing uncontrollably and looked very miserable. I thought to myself – ‘that guy’s heading for a breakdown’.
