NEWSLETTER – SEPTEMBER 2018

Well it has been over 3 months since we held the Dominion Conference at Hokitia during Queen’s Birthday weekend.

 

I would like to congratulate the Hokitika Savage Club for a very well run and fun weekend!

I am sure that all our members would like to thank you all for the hard work and time you put in resulting in such a successful event.  A job certainly very well done.

 

I would also like to take this opportunity to thank Past Dominion President, Jack Paine for his sterling work as stand in Conference Minute Secretary which was of immense help to me.  Jack was very professional and precise in recording everything that took place.

My ever-lasting gratitude Jack. 

 

As a result of Jack’s efforts all the Executive, Groups and all Club Presidents/Chiefs and Secretaries should have received the Conference Minutes by email or by snail mail.

 

The next Dominion Conference will be held at Blenheim – hosted by the Blenheim Orphans Club on the weekend of 20th, 21st of June 2020 and we hope with the change away from Queen’s Birthday weekend will allow ALL clubs to be present as we need representatives from every club to be present and have their say.

 

New Dominion President, Ken Ham hopes that all clubs will send their newsletters to him so that he can keep up with their activities and also so that he can plan his official visiting.

 

Notice to all clubs, Savage or Orphan who require Service Badges to please let me as Dominion Secretary know in plenty of time so that these can be sent to you.  Sometimes these badges have to be sent by Courier to ensure you get them in time and this is an extra drain on our resources.

 

Also the Long Service Certificates require a suitable commendation to be printed on them and then they need to be signed by the Dominion President before they are mailed to you.  This takes a little time to complete.

 

Our condolences go to all clubs who have lost some very popular and valued members. 

To those who have had Wedding Anniversaries – congratulations.  To those members who have, or are unwell and to those who are or have been in hospital – we wish you a speedy recovery.

 

The Dominion Executive are looking for a Central club to hold our Executive Meeting to pass the Balance Sheet. We are hoping a club might be scheduled to have a Jubilee around mid season 2019 and who would be happy to accommodate our Executive Meeting. Please let me know if this would fit in with your plans for next year.

Best Regards

Lynton Hotter, Dominion Secretary
