Weekly Message - 16th January
Welcome back to our first meeting of 2107. Our speakers for the night were Steve Hopwood (ex RC of Berowra) and Doug Reid from the RC of Wahroonga. The topic was Hornsby Connect, a project initiated by Steve Hopwood, helping the needy in the community. We were also pleased to have Anneli and Bella Lindblad, mother and sister of Nicolina, a previous exchange student from Waitara Club. Bella gave a beautiful rendition of a Swedish folk song.
I would like to take the opportunity to thank the Coin Committee, under the guidance of Stephen Bruce, and in particular the work put in by Craig Fretwell behind the scenes. Maddie and Jenny have nearly 200kg to sort, having just received 70 kg from Melbourne. A payment of $3,700 has been received from Global Money Exchange, also money from US and Canada. An interesting aside from Craig’s work is the value of old silver and tokens we have in stock which will be sold on Ebay and should realise $3,000 - $5,000. Reconciliation, repatriation and inventory records are completely up to date.
Next Monday 16th, our own member Chris Robison will tell us about his two week visit to Cuba. This is a partners’ night and numbers will be required this week as we may need to book a larger room at the club. Please notify extra attendance numbers asap. The next Board meeting will be on Tuesday 24th January.
