                                               ELTHAM SAVAGE CLUB- MARCH NEWSLETTER
Hi Everyone,
It is with sadness that we mark the passing of our Life Member and ex-Dominion President Jim Frandsen. Jim had been  ill for some time but kept in touch with some of our members right up to his death on Monday 12th March. His private funeral was held later that week with  a few invited members present. Jim's knowledge of Savagery and his sometime candid remarks regarding items being rehearsed kept us on our toes,he will be sadly missed.
A belated thanks to the members who delivered Meals on Wheels during January.Because our roster for delivering is so early in the year many members do not realise that this  service has been part of our voluntary efforts for many years.
A reminder that we will not be having a bar at koreros this year, please feel free to bring your own drinks, we can still supply glasses. 
The recent Market Day was not so successful this year (probably the weather had something to do with it) so some of the goodies left over have been frozen and will be on our Sales Table, suitably marked, for the first korero and possibly the second.
Fundraising this year has been excellent, and those going to Conference have had a share of the money raised. Stockcars have been a great source of funds and with only one night postponed (programme was raced on the Sunday) the weather has co-operated. Last night of the season will be on our first korero  7th April.
As our rehearsal on Anzac Day clashes with members going to the various services we will start  rehearsing at 1pm. Combined rehearsals for our South Island trip will be held on 9th and 16th May and if necessary on the 23rd at the Eltham Clubrooms. Shirley will be in touch if this is altered. 
After receiving the dates for all the Western Group events I have made up the programme for the year.  These will be available when subs are received by the Treasurer. Don't forget subs are $35.00 if paid by the second korero otherwise the cost will be $45.00. 
Supper monitors for opening night are Richard and Jane.

Saturday 14th April   Stratford Opening night  8.00pm

We all know that carrots, mince pies etc are put out for Santa Claus but did you know that in Stratford carrots are put out in the letterboxes for the Easter Bunny in the hope that he will leave Easter eggs.No wonder Tohunga Gavin grows so many carrots!
Till next time, Bye for Now.
