Manawatu Savage Club newsletter November 2018
Hello Members, as this is my last newsletter for
2018, I would like to thank the council and club members for all your help and contributions to our club activities throughout the last 3 years of my term as President. Our club membership stands at 73, slightly down on last year, due to people leaving club
for various health reasons. I wish them a speedy return to good health. Our club concerts have all been of a very high standard and I would like to thank everyone involved including comperes. A special thank you to Barbara Jamieson, who after 27 years as the
clubs programme printer is stepping down. This roll has been taken over by Meri Tipene-Walker. The Public concert was held at the Globe theatre this year under the direction of Steve Allan. Thanks Steve. Special guests on the programme were our music
award winner, Amy Srichantra and the Freyberg High School concert band, under the direction of Mr Dave Edmonds.
Various mini groups have played at rest homes and other venues throughout the year adding to the clubs revenue. Wonderful
and thank you.
Welcome to our new Club President Mr Don Fulton

the Programme Organiser
We want to encourage as many as possible to take part in our monthly concerts. In order to compile the programme I need your
input of what you would like to do – sing, dance, be in a skit, play an instrument, be in a group item or whatever. I will also approach members directly to take part to get the right balance of items. The first concert will be Monday
11th February. Peter Elliott.
From the Treasurer: Peter Elliott:
