Notes on the meeting of 26th January
Our speakers for the evening were Rory Morrison MBE & Andrew Allen representing Sailability, a charity weve generously supported in the past by providing a dinghy. They are hoping that we will help to finance its replacement. Allan gave the vote of thanks.
Guest: Jens Lammering from the Pet Shop on the Parade. Introduced by George.
Club visits: Johnnie (& Mimi) attended Ringwood R.C.s Wine & Cheese evening at Greyfriars Community Centre. Jeff, Bill & Mike attended Verwood R.C. where retired G.P.
