President John:

 

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

From the Programme Organiser

 

Hello Members

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:

 

Hello Members   Subscriptions for the period 1 Oct 18 to 30 Sep 19 are $40 per person.  Council has set a late payment fee of $5 if subs are paid after 1 July 2019

From the Song Group Organiser:  Anne Merriman

 

Dear song Group Members:   As you know I have appointed to look after the “Song Group” this coming year. This is just to let you all know what my plans for future practice and performances are.

I am hoping that we can perform at the March Concert. To get something organised for February, would be a bit ambitious) we will start practises at the end of January or beginning of February.               I will be having practices in the hall on Thursday nights at 6.p.m: (However, this may have to be               renegotiated with other groups.

 

I am very sorry that Rita in unable to play for us at present, due to her unfortunate accident, but I am delighted that Margaret Davis has agreed to step in and help us out.

I don’t have a list of this year’s Song Book member so I would be grateful to those wanting to continue or new members, to contact me by email or phone jocel@orcon.net.nz or Ph. 357 2654.                           This will enable me to keep you up to date with words, music, backing tracks and what we are doing.

 

So here’s to good singing and hopefully lots of fun.

Cheers:         Anne.

 

To finish off, President John’s Dinner was enjoyed by 40 members, started at 5.pm. with a mix and mingles and a well presented dinner which everyone enjoyed. The lively entertainment by the Campbell Street boys, and their guest Kathy Buurman. With good old sing-a-long went down very well.  Thank you to our entertainers.

President John’ Report for August.

Hi to you all, and thank you those members for supporting the August concert. Guests were well received and the mystery guest, long time broadcaster, now retired, Brian O’Flaherty’s stirring performance of reviewing the situation, was tops. All in all it was just a great evening. 

Council notes:  Letter received from Bert Parsonage’s siblings, along with his rule book. Bert was a member from 1986 to 2006.  The fence to be repaired on the east side of the hall and front steps to be painted with non-slip paint. The sign in book seems to be working, BUT some lights around the hall have been found left on particularly in the men’s toilets. PLEASE if you use the hall check that all lights are off.  It was mention that the clubs financial position is sound, nice one.  Those on the raid keep your money coming into the raid a/c, only a month till we head away.                             While I have mentioned money, there are still some subs outstanding; it would be great if these could be attended to so our treasurer can sign of our membership for the year.   Do not forget to mark on your calendar Public concert 4th November at Globe theatre.   Also 24th November, clubs end of year dinner to be held at historic Kaingahou Estate. Take care all and see you at the September concert, when we will present our annual youth music award.    Regards John.

Report: from Steve Allan Public concert convener.

It almost too soon but I’m already counting down the weeks, (eleven,) to the concert to be held 4th November at 1.30.p.m. at the Globe theatre.  This week the performer selection panel will be meeting to agree on the program for the cast of 18, comprising of groups, skits and solo vocal and instrumental performers. The program will be drafted by the end of August. Those performers already contacted can expect another call to confirm the pieces they wish to perform, accompanist requirements, and duration of act. I’m looking forward to a real diversity of material. 

Four weeks before the concert, - on Sunday 7th October at 1.30.pm a staging practice will be held at our club rooms and a full dress rehearsal on. Sunday 28th October at 1.30.pm.

 

Ngaire and Christine are at work designing posters and tickets, as well as researching suppliers for staging objects and organising publicity.

As in past years the success of our public concerts is totally dependent on the enthusiasm and Involvement of our club’ members prepared to play a part.                    Please expect to be asked to help.

Regards Stephen Allan
