From The President

A big thank you to all 92 of our members and their guests who attended our annual Bastille Day dinner at the Tura Beach Country Club. This is the biggest attendance we have had for many years and probably the biggest ever. 
The Tura Beach Country Club provided a great venue and a wonderful menu which was enjoyed by all. With Mike Warren as MC and Greg Hunting as quiz master the evening was lively but relaxed and bottles of French wine found their way to the fortunate few who had an amazing knowledge of French history and culture.  Mareta Collins was in good voice and led us all in delivering a rousing rendition of La Marseillaise. A special thanks needs to go to Treasurer Kerry Hunting for her work in organising the event and to other committee members who assisted.
It’s that time of year again and we are holding our Annual General Meeting at the Infuse Restaurant in the Tura Shopping Centre on Monday, 4 September. I urge you all to come along if you can.  As Mike pointed out on Bastille Night, we are looking for new committee members.  We would like to have a person interested in looking after our modest library and acting as our historian. We would also like additional ladies on the Committee as Kerry is on her own at the moment. Further input on behalf of the feminine members of Alliance would be most welcome.  Please think about what you can bring to the Club ladies. Committee meetings are held monthly and last only about an hour so please think about putting your hand up. However, even if you don’t feel you are able to join the committee we would like you to come along and enjoy a meal with us at Infuse.
