Goulburn’s Workers Club  give us a room (Free of Charge) to hold our Meetings so the Committee would like our members to support this Club.  For our last two meetings the Worker’s Club has supplied  Tea, Coffee, etc in the room for us to purchase @ $3.00 (bottomless cup) (this is working well) or you can still purchase from Coffee Shop. Also several members have been staying after the meeting  for Social Luncheon.

Monthly Meetings:  Please send Apology to Secretary Janice or another member if you are unable to attend. Members can not put an apology in (unless they have been asked to) This is important for Insurance Purposes. At  the last meeting it was decided that if members do not wear their badge (most members have new one) we ask that you put a ‘Donation/Fine’ into a tin & this will go towards some special outing/occasion.

 Social Outing for October:   Eleven Members gathered @ K. and G. Café in Box Ave. for Morning Tea.(the date was during school holidays & also weather not the best) Everyone  enjoyed the Fun, Friendship &  Fellowship.  

Message from Secretary:  Janice Emailed/Handed out a Members Survey to be filled in so that we can start Planning for 2021, Guest Speakers & Topics of Interest.  For all Members, organizing Guest Speakers can be made easier if ‘your’ Club has a list of potential speakers & topics we can all help.  Do you have any contacts/friends who would be willing to come & give a short talk?  It can be a well-known person, local identity, community or health service.  Please fill in this Survey and give it to myself or Janice at our Monthly Meeting on Fri.27 November.

October Monthly Meeting: President Bill gave a formative talk about Photography; the different types of Cameras’ and Films etc.  Also Jean Piggott Jackie & Bill Crace were presented with their Member Induction Certificate and new Name Badges by President Bill.
