President’s Piece
Firstly, thank you to everyone who was able to attend last week’s meeting,
it was great to see you all there and your input with regards to our Club Projects was much appreciated and I look forward to working with you on what we discussed and for your continued support so we can make this happen.  
Well done Brian and Michael for helping to organise the presentation with Eldercare.
Just a reminder that our next Monday 10th August 2020 meeting will commence at 6.00 pm for 6.30 pm start and will finish at 8 pm.
Hopefully, by now you have all received our new online Attendance and Meal ordering email and have been able to complete this with ease. However, if you have any problems please let me know and I will be happy to assist.
