Our Open Day was a day that brought quite a few people into the club to see what they could do to find their ancestry. A couple of them joined, and some others were going to think it over before joining…All in all, quite a satisfactory day.
That time of the year is fast approaching when you have to take the bit between your teeth and decide if you wish to take a more active part in the running of your club. You can do this by nominating for any position that takes your fancy. The nomination forms will be mailed/emailed* out to all members along with proxy voting forms.
Back to that old subject where once again, I encourage all members to support your club through the fundraising enterprises as this allows us to purchase new research materials.
Note that the Mother’s Day Raffle is in progress and will be drawn on Saturday 13 May so come along.
We also have a beautiful Italian marble topped stand supplied by Jack Piper and two highly desirable collectable plates donated by Carmen Aebersold. These prizes will be drawn in November to celebrate the anniversary of the club. Tickets are on sale now. Now more than ever, we need your support.
If anyone has some time to spare, please consider being a volunteer in the office. If you wish to do so, please see any of the duty persons or your committee members.
Do not forget that are also anniversary mugs and recipe books (new edition) available for sale.
