Although our Annual General Meeting (AGM) last month was short on attendance, the voting Membership attending was supplemented by proxies from Active Members unable to attend.
In addition to elections, most of our AGM discussions centered on membership – numbers, trends and requirements. We also surfaced the concept of Planned Giving to enhance our coffers and give us more flexibility. Stand by for more on these.
I want to recognize and thank Club members assisting with the monthly logistics supporting Mess Nights, and to extend a special thanks to COL Fred Darley (Ret) for his superb program printing donations this past year as in the past.
This past year we “showed the flag” by participating in eight community events. We want to continue with these visitations to have a presence in the community, and to extend invitations to our Mess Nights to new friends.
