We were lucky to have nice weather for our AGM on Saturday 16th September.
Thirteen members attended and we covered all the usual business, the president gave his report and it is covered elsewhere in this bulletin.
Our committee for the next twelve months was elected and is:
- President – Rodney Thompson
- Vice President – Leigh Douglas
- Secretary – jointly Bill and Judy Gardner
- Treasurer – Judith Thompson
- Committee Members:
- David Steane
- Mabel Brouwer
- Charles Kerr
- Wendy Bedggood
- Newsletter Editor – Margo Sietsm
Activities for the coming year were discussed and the new committee will work towards organising many of the good suggestions.
We had lunch then went for a walk to Fish Falls, along the way we checked out some potential spots to install a seat. Some time ago it was decided to have a seat installed along the walk to recognise the Friends of Zumsteins who folded some years ago but passed their remaining finances to FOGGs. Having decided on a couple of suitable spots these have been given to Parks and the process of getting a seat installed can now happen.
We had hoped to see more wild flowers on our walk but this cold weather has made them late, although the sunny day and splashes of yellow from the wattle made us all feel like spring has arrived.
