Presidents Report 2017-2018
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 now.
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 Myrtle.
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 each month.
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 ALL LYN
Now to another year  !!! Enjoy our hobby and may  that elusive stamp you require turn up
