Club Zoom Meetings
What a wonderful evening with 7 guests and an interesting speaker, Ray Berghouse, speaking about combat aircraft in different places in the world.
The club is certainly busy considering the Covid situation – Friendship lunches, Tree of Joy preparations, book sales, mask sales, a car run, AGM, our return to Springfield, Christmas preparations …. and the list goes on.
Please remember to let John Tchetchenian know if you will or will not be at Springfield by Thursday midday. We will be meeting 3 prospective members for the first-time face to face, as well as bestowing Tom Westcott and Ross Ballinger with their honorary memberships. Steve Wagner will speak about National Parks and Wildlife.
Springfield will be different under Covid rules, but I know Frank will make us extremely welcome. Please acquaint yourselves with the format from Keith.
We are running up to the AGM on December 9. Please feel free to contact either Keith or myself if you would like to be involved at board level. It is interesting and rewarding all at once.
Have a safe, healthy and happy week.
