President Nita Eubank opened the meeting welcoming members and visitors.
We decided to eat before the usual business of the AGM. The menu comprised of a pie and peas supper followed by fruit salad and trifle prepared by the members.
The AGM followed with Secretary Sheila Martin reading the minutes. Treasurer Anita Birkett read the annual accounts, which were very favourable. Anita certainly deserves our applause for having given forty years' service as our treasurer.
Nita gave a positive Presidents' Address for the year.
All three officers have given an excellent years' service and their efforts were rewarded by being asked to continue for 2018.
Pat Harper won the annual competition award.
The three speakers for next year competition was won by Cath Bell, with Nita Eubank in second place.
The raffle was won by Jean Moralee.
