LAST WEEK’S MEETING
President Karen opened the meeting at 19.00 and welcomed everybody, including Ivan Hankinson, Lois White and Felicity Grigor representing the Maleny Show Society. There were 13 members present.
Brian King informed us that:
The Maleny Singers have asked us to assist with the construction of a concrete path.
Dick Andrews will be leaving Maleny on 16th April.
Shave for a Cure has raised over $11,000.
Lionel T apologized for Angela and on her behalf asked for volunteers for the Maleny Music Festival on Friday 20th April from 17.30 - 20.30.
Sergeant Bill entertained us with his usual jokes to the detriment of his fellow members, but all had a good laugh.
Ivan Hankinson was introduced by Karen B.
Felicity Gregor, as the Public Relations and Publicity Officer of the Maleny Show Society, told us about her work and how she is looking for sponsors for this 75th Maleny Agricultural Show.
Ivan Hankinson, as the President of the Maleny Show Society, then took us on a historical tour of the ” Show” since its start in 1922. The slideshow was very interesting but again the technical equipment had its obstinate periods.
Andy A thanked Ivan, Lois and Felicity on behalf of our club and the meeting was closed at 20.35.
