PRESIDENT’S REPORT – DECEMBER 2018
MERRY CHRISTMAS AND A HAPPY NEW YEAR TO YOU AND YOURS.
Before anything else, I am so
happy to announce that our John Exeter has agreed to take on the role of
Subiaco Petanque Club Reporter and produce our much loved newsletter each month
for all our members. Many thank’s John
– that is such good news…
Let me also say a big ‘thank you’
to all our volunteer members who so willingly came along for the day to both
the Have a Go Day
Festival at the Burswood on 14th
November, and the Bonjour Perth French Festival at Market Square, Subiaco on 10th
and 11th November. Both
these events are held each year and are well worth attending. Special thanks to Leonie Weir, Barbara
Holm, Joe Corcoran, John Exeter, Marek Glinski and Wendy Akerman, who attended
at the Petanque Stands, demonstrating how our game is played and promoting the
clubs in WA. I must also mention and
thank Anton Wieland for his amazing display at the club on Halloween, skeleton
suit and all, and the jockey suit and miniature horses for everyone at the
Melbourne Cup Luncheon. Thank you so
much Anton. Thank you to Paul Forden,
who runs our President’s Cup Event each month. Special thanks also to our Marek
Glinski, who keeps our cellar in order and recently had his first experience
ever of cooking sausages at a Sausage Sizzle.
My special thanks to all my
committee members, each and every one of you - John Exeter, Paul Forden, Leonie
Weir, Barbara Holm, Guy Soubeyran, Muriel Boyd.
It has been a great 6 months, not without a
few hitches, however I appreciate all your ideas and energy. Special thank you to Julie Wright for
continuing as our Treasurer until our overseas committee members return – you
are much appreciated. Merry Christmas to George Wright, Colin and Jan
Robinson…look forward to seeing you back in WA, in the New Year. Thank you
always to both Julie Wright and Val Gridley for the amazing cuisine we so enjoy
and to our Reporter Extraordinaire Thelma Dry.
I wish you each and every one a
very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year from both Joe and myself.
