Colin and Gail will run it. Many thanks to Martin who very kindly offered to come and help.
We have been offered a few sausage sizzles. If anyone has a suitable barbecue and or a shelter that we could use on these occasions it would be much easier and time saving not to have to borrow the items from other sources.
Ian reminded members of the guest speaker for next week, Rebecca Clarkson who will talk about "Fremantle 100 Hampton Road" a social housing project..
He encouraged members to invite family, friends and past members to come and hear the talk.

John gave a short Board report saying that there had been no resolution re the Charity Budget.
Regarding prospective members, it would be up to the person responsible for them coming to ascertain if they would be attending and therefore be having a meal.
There will be a succession planning meeting on August 25th at John's.
Patricia reported that she and Ian had presented 30 microscopes to the Attadale PS for which they were very grateful. They also left membership cards in the staffroom.
Patricia has organised for two students from Clontarf to attend RYPEN on September 11th
at the Serpentine Camping Centre in Jarrahdale. As she is unable to take the boys there, Tom Slater very kindly offered to take them
Betty has sent out invoices for subscriptions and asked if everyone could please pay them fairly quickly.
After Jim's fines session Colin won the door prize and Tom was unlucky not to draw the joker.
