We had fourth new member inducted being Danny Matern. Rachel spoke highly of Danny, as his
proposer, so welcome aboard Danny, settle in and get ready for next year.
Our Guest speaker last week was Belinda Gill who explained what she and her husband do in the
Philippines working amongst the poor. I am sure Graham will have more on this further into the bulletin.(ed. sorry but this story will appear in next weeks bulletin)
Please remember this week we are at the CFA on Grossman's Road for our meeting and apologies will need to go through the normal channels. Always remember that partners and guests are very welcomed on these nights. This will be the last visit to our emergency workers venues for this year and due to the success of these nights I do hope they continue next year.
Hope you are all enjoying the last of our Autumn weather and see you on Monday night.
