August Membership and New Club Development Month
Due to unexpected absences, the planned Board Meeting did not take place. Instead, members present discussed the outcome of FARSE. Sec. Heather has sent Certificates of Appreciation to Exhibitors & those who assisted in the setting up & dismantling of equipment and Treas. Noel has completed all the paperwork and has submitted the acquittal of the Shire of Campaspe Grant that was received to assist with the running of FARSE.
A final report with several photos was published in this week’s Campaspe News but members noted that it was disappointing that the paper was not able to send a reporter/photographer to cover the event. In fact all write-ups & photos published in the Campaspe News over the past few weeks have been the work of Club members, not the newspaper staff.
ROADEC: PP Graeme reported on the successful completion of the Course by 18, Year 11 students from St.Augustine’s College, Kyabram. Graeme reported that it was very satisfying to see one of the girls who had never been behind the wheel of a car complete the figure-of-eight exercise in a very confident manner. Prior to the Course, the classroom was cleaned and cars washed and refuelled.
John Lockie from VicRoads will be visiting, at Sec. Heather’s invitation, ROADEC during the time that students from Rochester Secondary College will be attending.
