DSC_0108I THINK THAT THIS IS A GOOD TIME FOR ME TO GIVE YOU AN UPDATE ON WHAT THE BOARD HAS BEEN DOING

IN SEPT WE HAD THE COMMEMORATION OF HERITAGE STONES AT WHICH WE HAVE HAD TO ADD TWO NEW RACKS FOR THE DISPLAY. IT WAS ALSO PLEASING THAT WE HAD MORE SUPPORT FROM THE BASE IN ATTENDING THE EVENT.

WE HAVE FUNDED NEW SIGNAGE FOR THE MUSEUM AND HAVE APPROVED A FURTHER SUM TO RENEW THE LARGE ROADSIDE SIGN IN THE PARKING LOT

THE MUSEUM HAS TAKEN OVER BLDG 268 WHERE THE AIRCRAFT AND VEHICLE TEAMS WILL BE CENTRED AND THE ASSOC HAS PAID FOR NEW TOOLS AND EQPT TO HELP THEM CONTINUE THE EXCELLENT WORK THEY ARE DOING

OUR WEBSITE CONTINUES TO GO FROM STRENGTH TO STRENGTH SO PSE CONTINUE TO GIVE CORRINE ALL THE UPDATES THAT YOU CAN.

I AM SORRY TO ADVISE THAT WE WILL BE LOSING ONE OF OUR LONG TIME MEMBERS. SALLY ATTON AND HER HUSBAND ROB ARE MOVING SOUTH AND I WOULD LIKE TO THANK SALLY FOR THE STERLING WORK SHE HAS DONE IN KEEPING OUR FLOWER BOXES IN BLOOM. WE ARE NOW LOOKING FOR A REPLACEMENT, SOMEONE WITH A GREEN THUMB PREFERABLY.

SALLY, IT HAS BEEN A JOY HAVING YOU HERE AND GOOD LUCK WITH THE MOVE.

WE HAVE DONE WELL WITH OUR DONATIONS THIS SUMMER, DUE IN NO SMALL WAY TO THE FRIENDLY WELCOMING OUR VOLUNTEERS DISPLAY TO OUR VISITORS.

BUT I  HAVE TO SAY THAT NO ONE HAS BETTERED THE US1M NOTE FOUND IN OUR DONATION BOX ONE SUNDAY. IF ONLY IT HAD BEEN REAL. BUT I LIKE TO THINK THAT THE DONOR MIGHT NOT HAVE HAD 1M TO GIVE US, BUT THOUGHT THAT WE WERE WORTH IT – AND INDEED WE ARE.

 

MERRY CHRISTMAS
