May 2020 Vice President Report

News Item


It’s all done. From the beginning of  January till after Easter it has taken us to pack up and empty the building at Dunheved Circuit, where we had 40 years of fun, entertaining, anniversaries, weddings, wakes, parties and caring for our members and family’s.                                                                                                                          This job was a lot bigger than we first had anticipated. After a few garage sales we started sorting out what to keep and what to get rid of. It was interesting to see what the club had gathered through the years, every nook and cranny was stacked with items, most of them donated, that we could use one day.                                                                                                                            Our two containers are now packed with items we will be able to use if and when we find a permanent place in the near future and they are now stored at one of our members’ property.                                                                                                                       The office with computers copier and all the relevant paperwork has moved to Bentley Rd St Marys among a lot of other items that we still need in the Mt Druitt Hall. The shop stock has moved to Homebush and a lot of other items that we might need in the near future has moved to Silverdale.                                                                                                                                                      I have now handed in the keys of the building and thank the new owners for waving the rent for the time that we were cleaning up.                                                   

The enormous amount of work that has been done in this time was not possible without the very dedicated group of volunteers that have spent hours and hours to get it all done.                                                                                                                  In all the years of being involved I made sure not to name individuals when thanking for a job well done, just in case you forget some body.                                                        I always made sure to thank all the volunteers.                                                                But, there is always a first time for everything and this time I think it is warranted to name all the volunteers that have worked so many hours, some even during Easter weekend, right up until the last cleaning day. It has not been easy, physical hard work as well as emotional of seeing the 40 years coming to an end.                                         THANK YOU………...THANK YOU…………. THANK YOU.                                              

Allan and Trudy Potter, Ian and Marlene Turnbull, Herman and Gerda Zirkzee, Jono and Erica Barnes, Henk van Leeuwen, Sjoerd Rasker, Alice v. d. Heg, Mia Joosten.                                                                                                              John Joosten Vice President
