Combined Meeting 14 November

  1. Your wandering Bulletin Editor hasn’t received a meeting report from last week yet. Looking at the messages below it seems likely that everyone was having too much of a good time to think about taking notes for the bulletin.
  2. Message from President Noel
  1. Thanks to everyone that was able to attend and for helping with organising the meeting. I trust that you all enjoyed the night. Everyone I spoke to from the other clubs said that they had enjoyed themselves.
  2. We raised $339 from the raffle and $229 from the sergeants. Well done team.
  3. Congratulations to Bruce Gillies for his award of another Paul Harris Award from District Governor Lindsay. This was  on the District Governor's own initiative. I didn't know it was going to be presented. Well deserved Bruce.
  4. Thanks to those that brought partners and guests with them. We had 22 from the club and 80 in total in attendance. A very successful night thanks to everyone lending a hand.
  1. Message from Past President Frank
  1. I know it is a team effort, but I would like to congratulate President Noel on running such a wonderful evening with great leadership, commentary and timing.
