Treasurers Report

New Treasurer’s inaugural report

Bert Guy

I am pleased to report that as at the 26th of May, 107 members (86%) have paid their annual subscription.

May I encourage those who, for any reason have not yet paid to use the EFT facility via the Probus Bank Account:

BSB: 083 277        A/c #: 569521388.

Can you ensure that you mention your name and the reason for your payment when you make the transfer. You can also hand me the cash/cheque at our next meeting.

Club rules state that all subscriptions need to be banked before the 30th of June.

As of this date, we have a bank balance of $9,784.70, a healthy amount at this time, however, we still face the costs of the Parliament House excursion and the rent of the Bowling Club meeting facility of $500 for the month.

The next meeting is at Camberwell Library at 10.00am on June 26, (fourth Wednesday of the month).

As this is the last meeting of the financial year and amid the rush to moderate tax imposts whilst time remains, it could be given over to cunning plots to deny Dr Chalmers (or is it Charmers?) his dues, although many of us are less adventurous now and the days of double deductions for contributions to mining companies are long past. So that could mean a short meeting, but no doubt something else will turn up. So I suggest you come along.

Armchair Travel

Armchair Travel

Convenor: Shirley Fenemor

Well, as you all know our next get together would have been on Wednesday 26th June. Unfortunately, I must disappoint you as Tom and I will be away on The Ghan trip from Darwin at that time and I must therefore cancel the June Armchair Travel occasion. My sincere apologies – it was so difficult to arrange bookings that there was little choice.

As Tom will, of course, have his camera with him maybe we will have another topic for a later meeting. I hope to see you all in July instead.
