Get More Involved:
I would like to thank a members for the recent response to our call for volunteers to help organise our monthly lunches. If you would like to volunteer it is not too late. We still have July unfilled. Please consider getting involved, whatever category of membership you are. The committee will support you all the way. Also remember you are most welcome to invite private guests who do not necessarily have to be connected with our Association. Generally, the more the merrier. Please, however, ensure that your guests have settled their account BEFORE you leave each function. Many thanks.
