Volume 34, Issue No. 16 - 26 October 2020
I know you will all join with me in wishing Kerry’s Mum our best wishes and a speedy recovery.
It was a pleasure to acknowledge our guests Ros Hogan, Jason Terry (both soon to join our Club), and Robert Erskine (AG).
Computer issues kept our Guest Speaker away. We will need to reschedule.
Two Friendship Lunches were held this past weekend, each were declared a great success by hosts and participants.
Nick Chuah (brain tumour) has published an article, to which, I understand members will be given a link. Linda Barrett (house fire) has remained out of touch, with several members attempting contact.
I thank those that agreed to form the Container Sales Group (two or three members to coordinate fund raising by selling donated articles from the Public). Colin S has agreed to tutor these members and release them to the world.
“That the Club return to a Calendar that includes Springfield Receptions as a venue for regular meetings”
The above motion was overwhelmingly passed. (Circa 22 out of 25 voted in favour, plus three independent absentee votes - all in favour)
The Club will meet, at Springfield, on 16th & 30th November, plus 14th December. All will be Partner Nights. The format for 14th December (Kris Kringle) will be subject to a further Member vote.
Next week our Guest Speaker is Vince de Gallego. He is speaking on Local v Govt controls and the issues faced ‘way back when’ compared to now.
I thank all those participating in the mini Book Sale on Saturday (Fire Station – Colin S), and Bunnings BBQ on Sunday (Dural- Douglas) in the coming week.
Don’t let your son break your leg – it’s a bummer.

The Garage Sale 2019
We have just had our best and most successful Garage Sale on the weekend of 12 & 13 October raising a gross - north of $35k.
Excellent Project Management and a large number of dedicated volunteers, some putting in hours of effort, in the weeks before the weekend contributed to this result.
