Quota held its AGM in April and followed with the Changeover dinner at Pippi’s in Yamba.
A wonderful night was enjoyed by members and partners. Thank you Vicki for the organisation and the yummy decorations. Highlight of the evening included presenting badges to two of our four new members. Jo Enslow presented Lin Bullpitt, a new member, and Cristine Lothian, a returning member, with the badges and welcomed them to the Quota family.
Each year Quota members nominate the member who they feel embodies the ideals of Quota, the winner of which is presented the Marie Sullivan Award. Named after our late member Marie Sullivan who worked tirelessly in the community, the recipient is pinned with the Q brooch to be worn for the year. This year’s recipient is Jill Brown, who has given her all to Quota over the years and especially in the past year organising Quota’s very successful Hearing Expo. Congratulations Jill.
The new Quota committee includes some new faces. President, Wendy Smith thanked the outgoing committee and welcomed the new.
Treasurer, Lin Buckpitt has shown her commitment to Quota taking on this role as a new member.
Assistant Treasurer is Sharman Naylor and Secretary is Suz Monin. Looking after International Service is Vicki Fleming, Speech and Hearing is Denise Gillies and Disadvantaged Women & Children is Debbie Cannon.
The Antiques & Collectables Fair being organised by Quota has had to be put off for 2016 due to a clash of dates. However, the committee is hoping that the Fair will go ahead in 2017.
If you are interested in joining us at any time, Quota meets at Yamba Bowling Club at 5.30pm on the 2nd Tuesday of each month. After the meeting we enjoy dinner in the Norfolk Bistro.
