CLUB BULLETIN: MEETING 1068/1069/1070: FUTURE OF THE CLUB

Julie and Kirsty offered their apologies for meeting 1070. Note, there have been a number of meetings since the last bulletin. Some have been joint meetings, the latest being 12th March with St Peters Club.

Longtime Honorary Member, Simon Brewer, attended this week’s meeting and is seen chatting, post meeting with current President Chris, erstwhile President Ian and Club Secretary Colin.

At the most recent Board Meeting, the board members resolved to keep the Club running next Rotary Year, which was fleshed out a little more at Breakfast. Club Assembly and discussion about future membership and The Reel Event. Further meeting on The Reel Event at the Gascoines, Thursday evening, 14th March.

Magill Market Last Sunday

Stallholder numbers were down, but we were blessed with perfect weather.

Graham Goodings – St. Peters’ Guest Speaker

St Peters’ Guest Speaker on Tuesday evening 12th March was veteran newsreader Graham Goodings (he’s a funny man), seen with Mark and Susan. This was a joint meeting and it’s a pity that only 3 Club members from Magill could attend. By the way there was no Goofy Expressions contest. This sometimes happens when club photographer Mark loses control of the camera. Mark is seen mumbling ‘Chris, take the #@!? Shot’.
