Presidents Report 5/2/2014.

Well took a while but welcome to my first report for the New Year. January just flew by.

We have had some visitors come along to our meetings recently Rob Buroyne has been back for a few visits now and David and Caroline Jones (Alex introduced). It was sad news that David and Caroline will not be joining us at this stage but maybe they’ll visit again.

Combined club project at MacKillop Village. Nambour Club have decided to pull out of the project with now a three way split for the funding. Melaine Ferguson advised the costs will be approx $1,000 to $1,200 each. We still have a surface water drain to finish off.

This week’s meeting Wednesday 5th Feb is a vocational visit to Salvation Army new complex in Nambour. Combined meeting with Nambour and Woombye Palmwoods club and partners night.

Murgon weekend, 14th, 15th March 2014. Watch this space. I have contacted Clovely Cottage (winery and cellar door) Moffatdale and they have a B&B available for this weekend. The B&B accommodates 10 people, 5 rooms x 2 and they will also allow us to park our caravans there for the weekend. They provide breakfast in the cost. There is a large dining table to use and BBQ is available to have dinner on Saturday night. I am still negotiating the cost, at this stage approx $125.00 per couple per night but will inform you soon. Depending on numbers and who books in first there is also some accommodation at park up the road that have 3 cabins available and the motel in Murgon has some rooms available.
