Hi everyone

1.     The 2019 AGM will be held on the 3rd of February at the Myrtleford Neighborhood Centre commencing at 10am. Followed by the February meeting.

·       The Neighbourhood Centre is directly opposite the Target complex, set back a little, entrance off a little lane next to the old picture theatre on the highway just before Standish Street. On the other side of the Centre is a Caltex Service Station. Street parking, and parking at the rear entered from Standish Street or, behind Target across the road by going around the new roundabout too if it comes to that. Getting hold of the key is not going to be a problem.

·       The AGM meeting is a very short meeting with the only agenda item being the election of the 2019 Executive including President and vice President, Secretary and Assistant, Treasurer and Assistant and six Committee members. Thank you to everyone who has put their names forward.

·       After the AGM the February Committee meeting will take place.
