Presidents Report December 2017

News Item


From the President’s desk        AGM report                                   

The club has had a very busy year with all regular and some new functions. Our yearly festival keeps growing from strength to strength. Three days before the event the whole place was flooded, but somebody must have been looking after us, as the weather turned out glorious that weekend resulting in a record crowd and takings. The card tournaments are slowly losing some participants but they are still a worthwhile function and we hope that they can keep going for a while. Following up on the Moving on programme we now have several weeks of the Stepping on programme, that is provided free of charge to our members by Nepean Health and they have been worthwhile for the persons that have made the time to participate, It is teaching them how to cope with the small and bigger problems that are creeping up when you are maturing in age. We now have also had three gatherings in our club from the Sri Lanka- Dutch community in N.S.W. They have been able to fill the hall two days in a row and our dancefloor has not been so crowded in years. Last Sunday we had our first Braderie/Mini market with life entertainment all day and it was a great success many people came from as far away as the Hunter Valley and Canberra. For next year we will cancel the regular garage sale and replace it with this Braderie it has proven to be better in many ways, we don’t have to watch the weather anymore and many people have commented that it was so gezellig. For the time being we cannot take any items for the sales anymore as we are running out of storage, We have also find that furniture is very hard to get rid of, even the salvation army is not that interested anymore ,so please no furniture any more. We will advertise in the magazine again when we are ready to receive more good items for the next one. May I take this opportunity to thank first of all every volunteer that has helped us through the year with Festival, Braderie and other events? A warm welcome to our new board member John Haarsma. And last but not least Thank You to all my hard working committee members that keep this place going even when I am not here.

J Joosten President
