Already July – where does the time go?

Our AGM will be held on the Wednesday July 28 at the GDSC in the auditorium. Our monthly meeting will commence at 1.30pm and the AGM will follow. All positions are declared vacant. Nomination forms for executive positions for 2021/2022 are to be returned to our secretary Gerri before the closing date of July 21.

What a great morning we had catering for the line dancing weekend on June 19. Thanks to everyone that contributed with their time, cooking the cakes, making the sandwiches, running the kitchen, serving the morning teas, manning the money collections and Covid safety and trading tables. It was a very successful morning. Special thanks to Marianne Kavanagh for her great organisation skills that makes this fundraising event run so well.

Our Clothing & Collectable Shop continues to amaze us how well it’s doing. We are very lucky to be receiving such good quality donations, thank you all for your support. We couldn’t operate this shop without our ladies who continually put their names on the roster to volunteer their time to assist in the shop. They are always eager to do any jobs necessary and with a smile on their face, not so visible this week as we are wearing masks in line with Covid rules.

Our shop will close at 12pm Wednesday and Thursday for the July Races.

Keep safe everyone.
