Late meeting apologies
Daryl has asked that all members who cannot attend a meeting because of last-minute/unforeseen circumstances to let John Nulty know by midday on the day of the meeting at the latest. If this is not possible, it is imperative to contact Diane & Gilbert on 6927 3552. The restaurant is charging the club for all members listed to attend, even if they don’t turn up. It is patently unfair to expect the club to pay for these meals when it is in fact the responsibility of the individual member.
Please let John Nulty know numbers ASAP for Christmas Party at Daryl & Jann’s, so we know how much meat & salads have to be purchased.
Invitations to school presentation nights have been received; the following members and partners are representing our club. Contact the listed members if you wish to attend as well.
