Information for the Membership
As you are all now probably aware that Vicki has retired from her duties of Social Director. The first problem was that no one came forward to take over the job. The second was that due to this the kitchen would be closed completely.
After the AGM several of us had a discussion and decided, if the Board agreed, that I would take over the duties as Social Director with some conditions. This was that a new committee would be set up and initially the winter usage of the kitchen would continue and for the summer season only tea, coffee and goodies would be provided at all Club and Open Competitions, all lunches would be Brown Bag.
However, when the committee gets together, we are hoping to be able to organize and host at least a Christmas Party. This will only happen with the full involvement of the membership under the guidance of the Social Committee.
All other events needing refreshments other than tea, coffee and goodies, such as Canada Day, BC Day etc. will be organized and run by a separate volunteer committee. With initial assistance and guidance of the Social Committee.
Basically, the object is to keep the kitchen open and functional without the need for time and energy consuming full sit-down meals.
Finally, I must emphasize that this can only continue with the full cooperation and assistance from the membership.
