A Message from President Cherry
I wish to welcome the new committee with three newly elected members returning, two in different capacities to their previous ones, Peter Moxham as Vice President, Liz Pawsey as Social and Susan Allsop as Secretary, the position she held when the Club commenced twelve years ago. How much more active we are now with such a variety of activities to attend. We are anticipating this interesting and varied program will continue with our lunches, outings, trips away and other interest groups in the coming year, not forgetting the resolute attention to detail of our committee and support groups who are the reason our club exists so successfully.
Lesley started our year with her swan song Mystery Bus Trip which had us all guessing, particularly when we approached Mona Vale Rd, would we be turning right or left? Our destination turned out to be Palm Beach Wharf, where time allowed us to have a coffee before a cruise around beautiful Pittwater followed by lunch at the Palm Beach Club. A great response with over fifty members attending. How fortunate we are to live in this part of Sydney.
Please approach me or any of the committee if you have any concerns or ideas for functions or any new interest groups and we will certainly give it consideration. The Suggestion Box will be located with the sign-in sheets. I look forward to seeing you at our April meeting with ‘Biscuits’ as the speaker’s subject. Warm regards.
