Meeting January 20th
Mal Bennett reminded members of the annual crabbing day at Jim & Jenny Calcei’s on Sunday, February 2nd. Jim has only two boats available and would like more.
Mal circulated an attendance sheet asking for numbers who would be going crabbing at 8.00am and those who would be coming around 12.00 for lunch.
Those attending are requested to bring a salad or dessert and their drinks.
The address is Janis Street, Old Halls Head.
Colin McCulloch thanked all of the volunteers who made the recent extra sausages sizzles possible. He particularly thanked Patricia, Carole, Gail, Bob, Tony, Jeff and Greg who worked on both days.
On December 29 we sold 506 SSs and 254 drinks, had donations of $31.95 and banked $921.20. Because we had catered for 750 SSs we had lots of stock for our next SS and the Bicton Men’s’ Shed donated about 140 sausages so we banked a healthy $1138.55 after selling just 452 SSs and 261 drinks with donations of $38.75.
The 44c plus heat was formidable but all of the volunteers handled it with apparent ease.
The two extra days added a total of $2,059.75 to the charity account which is a very good result for the low numbers of SSs sold.
Our next SS will be combined with the Bicton Men’s Shed on Saturday, February 22.
Patricia Robertson reported that the City of Melville has given residents in Burke Drive an opportunity to object to the proposed placements of our park benches. If no objections are received the benches should be installed by March with four going in the dog exercise area and two in Troy Park.
Gillian Baker outlined details of a special Seniors’ Program run by Sound for Life called ‘Put a Spring in your Step – Improving Senior’s Well Being’. For further information call Gillian or Jean on 9329 9900.
Gillian also canvassed the possibility of a fund raising wine and cheese evening attending a performance of the Melville Theatre group. “Don’s Party” on February 19th may be too close to the Quiz Night so “Twelve Angry Men” in March may be better.
Mick Donnes encouraged all members to support the Quiz Night on Friday, February 21st by getting together a table or two and soliciting donations for prizes and the silent auction.
Gillian’s door prize was won by Ian Pittaway and Peter Field’s Chase the Joker, worth $280, was drawn by Winston Marsh but he failed to find the joker.
