It seems that many members have headed north for at least part of the southern winter and, as a result, there has been little activity at Nordic House. Saturday afternoons have been increasingly well attended, but still the roster for host for
the afternoon remains surprisingly empty.
So many people indicated in their survey returns that each member or member family unit should do one roster per year, but still, few people are putting their name down. It requires little effort – open and lock the House, boil the urn and provide a cake for afternoon tea. Other than that, enjoy the company and talk with old friends. The Committee awaits the day when we see just one month with a full roster!!
We encourage all members to be at Nordic House on 12 September for the Association’s annual general meeting. This year’s meeting will hold greater interest than normal when the results of the survey, seeking member feedback on the future of Nordic House, will be discussed. Please attend to hear the results and contribute your opinion to the House’s future.
Another topic for discussion and decision will centre on the planning of the Association’s golden (50th) anniversary celebrations in 2016. The Committee hopes to hold several celebratory events to mark this important milestone and values the contributions and ideas from our members. Of course, there will be the need for members to also contribute to make these events happen, but the efforts of groups of members will make the load on individuals considerably less. If you are unable to attend, please complete the proxy voting form that accompanies this edition of SCANPOST and forward to a committee member for actioning.
We look forward to you joining us at the AGM next month.
With best regards
