September, 2019

 

Dominion President Ken Ham and his lovely wife Karene have been very busy visiting Kindred Clubs in both islands following the sale of their business and moving house etc etc.

They would both like to thank sincerely all those people who have made their visits memorable, for their hospitality and friendship. They have enjoyed their time spent with other Clubs immensely.

 

The Kindred Clubs that Ken has not been able to visit this year, will definitely be visited next year before his two year term as Dominion President comes to an end.

 

A reminder to every Kindred Club member that the 2020 Biennial AGM and Conference will be held in Blenheim  on Friday 19th Saturday 20th and Sunday 21st of June. The venue will be the Marlborough Girls’ College Hall, 21 McLauchlan Street, Springlands, Blenheim.

 

The reason for changing the date of our Conference from Queen’s Birthday weekend is that Club members often have other commitments and family plans for that particular time of the year.  It is hoped that by making this change, of a fortnight later, it will allow members of all Clubs to attend. 

 

We need ALL  Clubs to have some members, at least, be present at this important part of the Kindred Club organisation which ALL Clubs are attached to.

 

NOMINATIONS FOR ALL EXECUTIVE POSITIONS have now been called for.

We remind ALL Clubs that good, keen enterprising members are out there and we need these people to be nominated for positions on our Executive.  All Clubs will receive the necessary nomination form.

 

Attached to this newsletter are the following forms:

1   Nomination form for all Executive positions

2   Official Club Delegates for the 2020 Conference

3   Newly elected Club office holders for the 2020 Season and Koreros or Sessions, Date and starting time.

4   Affiliation Fees for the 2020 Season are taken on the number of members as at 31st December, 2019.

 

I hope you all enjoy the rest of the Season.

 

Regards

Lynton

Dominion  Secretary

NEWSLETTER

May 2019Well another New Season is well under way and Clubs are enjoying themselves and the programs that are being presented.

 

Unfortunately some Clubs have lost some of their valuable members and our sympathy goes out to these Clubs and to the families and friends.

 

Dominion President, Ken Ham is now in a position to start visiting Clubs throughout New Zealand and we know that all Clubs will be happy to welcome Ken and his lovely wife Karenne on these official visits.  Please welcome them with open arms and offer them hospitality, comradeship and any help they may need as they certainly deserve this.

 

A Reminder to all Executive Members that the Executive Meeting is to be held in the Manawatu Savage Club Rooms on Saturday 29th of June, 2019 at 10am.

Please bring with you any ideas for discussion on how we can possibly change the situation that all clubs are having about the lack of attracting new members. (It is never too late) I can report that only two clubs had a small increase in their membership this Season. The rest have the same numbers or small loses.

 

I don’t believe it is too early to remind Clubs that the next Dominion Conference will be held at Blenheim on 20th and 21st of June 2020.

Please give some thought to nominating genuine members who could and are keen on standing for Executive positions – especially the North Island Clubs.

 

Best Regards

Lynton

January 2019

Hope you all had a happy Christmas with family and friends and will have a very enjoyable and prosperous New Year. For those who have lost loved ones our deepest sympathy.

 

For those of you who know Jim Kemsley – he celebrated his 100th Birthday last October. He wants me to let everyone know that he is now residing in Taurima Rest Home in Clawton Street, New Plymouth but he still has that very good brain and remembers everything and everybody.

 

At this time I wish to remind Clubs that Affiliations must be in to me not later that the 31st March 2019.  I also remind you all to have your personnel changes and meeting dates in by the end of February so that I can get the Calendar out early.  I am unable to let Clubs know of our Dominion President Ken Ham’s movements as I haven’t heard from him recently. He and Karenne have moved to Waikawa and Ken would like any mail to be sent care of the address above.

 

Also I have not heard of any Club wishing to host our Kindred Club Executive Meeting which needs to be held to pass the Financial Report and Balance Sheet and any other items of interest. At this stage I intend to contact Jim Lawrence and am hoping that he will consider hosting this meeting at the Manawatu Savage Club (as he did with the North Island Executive Meeting 2017). Palmerston North is a fairly central situation for both North and South as the airport has regular flights in and out from both islands. 

 

This will be held on a weekend early in the 2019 Season if possible. Will let all Executive members know as soon as it can be arranged. 

 

 

 

Lynton Hotter, Dominion Secretary.
