From the President's Pen
PRESIDENT'S REPORT 2015
As my time as President is coming to an end, I have enjoyed myself very much. It has been a great learning curve and I am pleased to be able to say that during the last 3 years quite a few things have been accomplished. Namely, we have increased our advertising campaign to include having a sign made up which is on display at the front of the library on our meeting days. We also had a sign put up over the door to the Family History Room, this was done with the kind permission of Grant White from the library.
The library has generously given us the use of the glass cabinet in our meeting room to display information about our Society plus items of interest. At the moment we are showing WW1 items. Also in the main library we have been given access to another display cabinet for our WW1 memorabilia.
Also during my time as President we celebrated our 25th Anniversary, which I had much pleasure in organising, with a lot of help from the members. It was a wonderful day and the weather was kind to us, and all those in attendance had a great time.
As a reminder, every 4 years we take nominations for a Life Member, our last one being Jillian Murphy. In 2016 we will again be asking members to nominate someone they think is worthy of this honour.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank all the members of the Executive and Committee for their help and assistance over the last 3 years. Pam Shea, our Secretary, has been a great help to me and very supportive. Also, thanks to Michael Murphy for stepping in to chair meeting when I was unavailable. And a big thanks to David Beddie for running all our courses, in addition to all his other duties, his knowledge and professionalism are what make these courses a great success.
In conclusion, I would like to wish the incoming President all the very best and I hope whoever takes on the position will find it as rewarding and enjoyable as I have. It has been my pleasure to serve as your President for the last 3 years.
