  • Food van has to be registered soon & Mark R has completed doing the electrics in the van.
  • Our proposed guest speaker Jake forgot to turn up to do his talk, so there were some disappointed guests

  • Wayne reminded members that we need to help cut up the firewood opposite his place for the next firewood raffle.
  • Neil reminded those rostered onto the next Bingo on Sept 13
