It is now 14 months since our last
Annual Meeting and the world of Philately has moved along as has our Society. California
Gully did not measure up to our expectations and we were left with a night I am
sure you would all rather forget
With the assistance of our Vice
President Bill we obtained the use of the CVGT hall at the old Long Gully
School which has been our home for our night meeting for over twelve months
The Hall which was formerly the
Specimen Hill State School has all the requirements we require and as such has
become our home each month.
Also our Wednesday Day meeting has
become a regular feature at Golden Square and sister clubs of St.Arnaud and
Ballarat have visited with us and it was wonderful having them as our guests.
A big thank you to Ken Datson who is
the organizer for our daytime meeting.
Apart from the Exchange sheets the
social atmosphere is wonderful.
If you have not been please come and
join Ken and us for a most relaxed and productive morning. Remember it is on
the Wednesday morning following the night meeting.
The Library has a new Manager in our
Ian Kimpton and books can be ordered online and picked up at the night meeting.
They can be returned the same way.
We are pleased to have Myrtle back
with us after her medical problems are hopefully now behind her. Keep well
Annual Dues for the present
Association year are now due so please contact and pay our Treasurer Margaret.
Our committee continues to meet as
required thanks to you all.
I would be very remiss if I did not
thank you all for your assistance to Bill at the Stamp Fair during our annual
holidays and particularly our Newsletter Editor John for taking on the added
duties of our distribution and maintaining such an interesting Newsletter
Thank you for your support One and
All and let us all continue to enjoy the hobby we all love.
Most of my outgoing correspondence
usually ends with a plea for more exchange sheets but to change that I would
like to on behalf of everybody sincerely thank Lyn for the outstanding work she
does in maintain and distributing the Exchange sheets. A BIG THANK YOU FROM US
Now to another year !!! Enjoy our hobby and may that elusive stamp you require turn up
