Meeting of Monday 31st July
Tonight we had a social evening at the Rustic Pantry in Coolamon, being the 5th Monday of the month.
It was a most enjoyable meal and evening of hospitality. On hand were several guests including past member Bernadette Milne, now a Friend of Rotary, and others including Maureen Hulsman, Lorraine Hamilton, Marilyn Jennings, Ivan Furner, Jan Nulty, Susan Glassford, Ruth Morgan and Mick O’Brien and his wife Gayle. Also in attendance were 18 members for a total of 28.
Mary Potts asked members to look at volunteering for the Hume and Hovell Ultra Marathon weekend. The organising committee is seeking volunteers for this event, in return for a donation to the club. They need an indication of volunteer numbers before next Monday’s meeting to determine if they can proceed with the event.
The meal was excellent and the atmosphere very pleasant indeed. Here are some photos from the evening:
