Welcome to our new Member – Yvonne Coleman

 

Next meeting is Saturday, 10th November, 2007 at 1 pm

 

MONTHLY RAFFLE – Tickets are $1 in the monthly raffles.  There are always a variety of items to be won and all monies raised by the raffles are used to buy research resources for the use of Club Members.  (List of new resources will be included in the Hindsight)

 

OPENING HOURS - PLEASE NOTE:  While we make every effort to keep the Club open at the rostered times, a shortage of volunteers means we are unable to provide emergency cover for rostered volunteers who are unable to attend due to other commitments.  Also be aware, that if the rostered duty persons are the only members in attendance, at approx. 1pm on Mondays and Saturdays, the Club will close early.  Please understand if you arrive to find the Clubrooms closed. If in doubt, please phone.

 

 

Well, it is that time of year again, when donations would be gratefully appreciated for use as Christmas Raffles.  As you know we like to have lots and lots of prizes.  If you have anything that is suitable for the raffle, please leave them in the Library.  Tickets are still $1 each.
