President Brian’s Report : No 22

Congratulations to all Club Members who completed our survey. I understand that 22 out of a total of 35 members completed this survey, which is a good section to then analyse and bring back to the club what was said and what was suggested. This process of reviewing the direction and long term continuance of the club will take some time so I ask all members to please have patience and bring forth ideas that might help at any time. An evening meeting is still being organised to allow our best attendance on the night.

Swing into Wings has now closed for booking a seat but again I understand the numbers coming are excellent. Well done Tony! The programme is set and the indications are for an excellent night to be had. Again Well Done Tony! I am looking forward to the evening an enjoying the company of members at what is our biggest Social Night held by the club for the year.

Guest Speaker, Betty Hassen, gave us a talk that she wishes to go around to all clubs to speak and gain support for each club to donate $500 which would raise $4,500 to enable her to purchase 3 specially designed sport wheelchairs for children who wish to play wheelchair Basketball. This talk to our club was for Betty to receive feedback about her content and presentation before she ventured onto other clubs. There was some good suggestions made by members that Betty said she would include in her presentation. This talk then brought about a surprise and that was that Paul, representing Ramsay Health, committed to donated the first $4,500 to purchase 3 sport wheelchairs immediately. Indeed a very generous offer from our newest member Paul. Thank you and good luck to Betty

I look forward to joining with you all on Friday
