Beacon 3rd September 2015

The markets were a great success despite a little rain.

aAt last week’s meeting we discussed in the open forum the future of donuts and the way we make and clean up after. The system we are using has served us well for many, many, years and full review is long overdue. David has undertaken to put together a comprehensive safety audit, Laurelle is looking up our old safety audit, Mike Young gave a report from the insurance side of things and all added to the discussion. This review will be available at this week’s meeting.

John Doyle, our newest member, gave us a potted history of his journey from Wagga Wagga to Narooma via Wollongong and Goulburn.

The Whale raffle is to be drawn next Saturday morning. If you have any tickets and money please bring them to this Weeks’s meeting. If you can spare a few minutes selling some during this week then contact Angie, she would appreciate the help. Thank you to John Rugen who took over from Merinda and I on Saturday morning in the main street and to Angie who hit Dalmeny Shops.

This week we have a fascinating speaker, Andrew Seaton on education beyond schooling, handy as September is Focus on Basic Education and Literacy month.

Short words from Bob Ant

Radar is settling in well.

bHe went on the school snow trip this week and played in snow for the first time….

Came home tired but happy. Missed school the next day as we thought we might get flooded in and he slept in. On Saturday we took him to friends who’s place backs on to the inlet and is full of Kangaroos and he got to meet Andrew Peacock.

I’m very grateful to Angie for her work on the Whale raffle and to every one for your help in this worthy cause.

Last update on Jack is that he is recovering well and when he gets home he will need a bit of support which we will all be able to give.




Frank has been away but the work on the web site continues, please send him any club photo’s you take – soon you will be able to post them your selves.

Have a great week and I’ll see you on Thursday. Don’t forget to let Anthony know if you cannot make the meeting or if you have guests by Tuesday. This helps with numbers for catering and if it is assumed you are going to be there and you are not then the club has to pay your meal and you need to pay back the club…… much easier to let Anthony know.

YIR Bob.
