JULY = NEWSLETTER.

 

Hi everyone,

 

Hope that you are keeping well and warm now that winter is upon us and hopefully your lives have returned to relative normal after the Lockdown.

 

First on behalf of our club we send our congratulations to  member Bill Oram who is now  Dominion President for the next 2 years.    Bill has worked hard for this honour and is a devoted , hard working member of our club, was also a member of the Wanganui Club before its closure.

Due to Covid 19 the bi=annual Dominion Conference was cancelled and   Bill will be bestowed this great honour in our Hall on  closing night, along with the celebrations of our 75th Anniversary.  Bill has designated this night as his official visit, and within the next 2 years Bill  assisted  by  his sister Shirley  will visit  all clubs  quite a major undertaking, we wish both Bill and Shirley safe travelling and fun in meeting a making new friends  - well done Bill.

 

Our sincerest sympathy to Lynton and his wife Lynne on the recent passing of a beloved sister and daughter Robyn.   One can only imaging the sorrow and pain along with other members of their family they must be experiencing at this time, our thoughts are with you all.

 

WITH OUR CLOSING NIGHT CELEBRATIONS IN MIND IT IS IMPORTANT  THAT NUMBERS WHO ARE ATTENING THIS EVENING   ADVISE  COLLEEN OR MYSELF  BEFORE 16TH SEPTEMBER 2020 –YOUR CO-OPERATION IN THIS MATTER WOULD BE APPRECIATED

OPENING NIGHT  :   This was a successful night and was great to catch up with our fellow savages and friends, the items went well, Peter who was joined by his guest Pat paid a very poignant item not only to Covid 19 but to the late Dame Vera Lynne I can remember as a child all Vera’s songs being played at home  with Mum and Dad in full voice singing them.

 

We have pleasure in  welcoming 

 

 

 

 

 

 2 new members, Valerie Kelly and Pat Curd both these people will be officially registered to our club on August 1st, we  look forward to them being part our team.

 

GARAGE SALE  :   This was a great success, thanks to all members who assisted in working and contribution of stuff, a very special thank you to Rachael and Tony Williams (Colleen and Gavin’s daughter and son-in-law) for their contribution without which our profit would have not been so healthy – final figure was $560.00 – this is now been deposited into our general account.

 

PUBLIC CONCERT  :  TO BE HELD ON WEDNESDAY 26TH AUGUST COMMENCING AT 1.30 PM.  MEMBERS  PLEASE NOTE THAT PRACTICE THAT DAY WLL COMMENCE AT 10.00 AM NOT 10.30.

BERT IS SITTING THROUGH AS VERY BORING SERMON.  IT’S SO BAD THE WOMAN IN THIS PEW BEHIND IS SNORING HER HEAD OFF.   IT GETS SO BAD THE VICAR STOPS TALKING AND GESTURES TO BERT ‘I SAY CAN YOU TURN ROUND AND WAKE UP THAT LADY’ BERT SHRUGS ‘ WHY DO I HAVE TO DO IT?

YOU’RE THE ONE WHO SET HER OFF”
