President's Message - December 2014

This President's Message is our last for 2014. I’d like to start off by offering best wishes to everyone for a safe and happy Christmas and a great New Year.

The Club’s Christmas party was a lovely event, which we held at Opal Cove where we were again looked after brilliantly well.  I think everyone who attended had a great time, enjoying fine food and fellowship, as well as the visit by our special Santa (thanks Jane).  And thanks to Maria for all her hard work in organising the event.
