Since the last SCANPOST was published, we have had a Busy Bee at Nordic House and another Over 50s lunch. Thanks to Henry and Palle for facilitating the Busy Bee and thank you to everyone who volunteered their time to give Nordic House a much needed spruce-up. And many thanks to Annette for another wonderfully successful Over 50s Lunch.
The Annual General Meeting of our Association will be held on Saturday 10 August at Nordic House commencing at 3.00 pm. The meeting should last about 1½ hours.
It’s that time of the year when the Association needs your financial support.
Annual membership fees are now due and to vote at the AGM in August, you must be a financial member of the Association.
