Congratulations and happy 100th birthday to Les Murray who was presented our club’s 100th birthday certificate and card. Marie McCabe celebrated her 90th birthday and received our club’s 90th birthday certificate and card.
Dot Jeffriess president’s award for 2016 was a three-way tie. Dot recognised the three committee members who helped her with paperwork at all meetings.
Congratulations to assistant treasurer Gwen Bell who records all social and trip payments before meetings for one hour which is a huge workload, and to our two assistant secretaries Jenny Glenn and Gail Hill. Jenny takes minutes at meetings and looks after the attendance book and apologies, while Gail reads the minutes and correspondence at all meetings.
Without the help of these three committee members Dot couldn’t complete her work as secretary-president and as social secretary. Take a bow Gwen, Gail and Jenny.
