REPORT ON MID-WINTER LUNCH & AGM

by Antoinette Nelson


Our Mid Winter lunch and AGM was attended by 74 members. The AGM was short and sweet, lasting 12 minutes. The main item was a change to the constitution, allowing up to 10 Lifetime Memberships. This was adopted unopposed - a good result

The Subscription Charge remains unchanged at $ 10.00 for the coming year.

In anticipation of the Lifetime Membership motion passing, Murray Robertson, as President, awarded Lifetime Memberships to Laurie Hamlet and John Roscoe after closure of the AGM

  • Laurie has been an active and very supportive member of the club for the past 29 years. He was celebrating his 100th birthday two days after our gathering.

  • John Roscoe who is stepping down from the committee but has been the brain behind the website, being instrumental in setting it up and maintaining it.


Unfortunately we were not able to attract new committee members so our committee is down from eight to seven and it is getting critical now.

AGM is over and all relaxing before the buffet opens

The Remuera Club, as usual, put on a very good buffet lunch. Going by the animated conversations and laughter everyone seemed to have had an enjoyable time. More than half the guests were still present at 2.30pm.
