2015 Survey on the future viability of Nordic House

The results of the 2015 survey to investigate the future viability of Nordic House, requested at the 2014 AGM, will be sent to members of the Association in the coming month. It was not possible to present these results at the 2015 AGM as all members of the sub-committee, formed to look into this issue, were overseas at the time.

Members are requested to appraise themselves of the results and feedback from the survey and, if seeking clarity or wishing to provide further input, attend an informal meeting and discussion to be held at Nordic House on 9 April at 3 pm. It must be stressed to members that no action can be taken on this survey without further discussion and formal voting at a future AGM or extraordinary members’ meeting. It is vital however, for planning purposes, that the committee has a sense of direction from the Association as it is not growing and is struggling to have members take an active role in its running.

You are urged to examine the results and give careful consideration as to how you want the Association to “look” in coming years.

Skt Hans Bonfire 2016

skthansaftenThere are currently no coordinators for the 2016 Skt Hans bonfire to be held at Nordic House in June this year.

The Committee is calling upon members to nominate to run this event. Full details of procedures are available and, with a team of helpers, it is a very easy event to run. If you are interested in taking this event on, please contact one of the committee members immediately.

In the event that no members nominate to coordinate and run this event in 2016, it will regrettably be cancelled for this year.

Busy bee – Sunday 22 May 2016

The next busy bee at Nordic House will be on Sunday 22 May 2016 commencing at 8 am and concluding around lunch time.  Please come along. This is an opportunity to tidy up the garden and house for winter.

The busy bee is always fun. Members help in whatever way they can (most tools required are provided) and it is an opportunity to share ideas and friendship.

You may bring along your own snack lunch, but hotdogs will also be available free of charge.

Any queries regarding the busy bee, please contact Gunnar Horn on 0431 259 672.
