Annual General Meeting
The Annual General Meeting of the Cherry Gardens Memorial Hall was held on Tuesday 26th February. The meeting approved a number of changes to the Constitution. Committee members were nominated at the meeting, and at the subsequent Committee meeting the following Office Bearers were elected:
Bill Semple Chair / Treasurer
Helen Whittle Secretary
Terry Whittle Bookings
Two of our longstanding committee members tendered their resignations on the night. Veronica Jones and Eric Annett informed the Committee of their intention to step down. They have both been involved with the Hall over many years, and the Committee has recognised their valuable contribution over that time.
The Committee is currently exploring ways of upgrading the appearance of the Hall; hopefully you will notice some positive changes over the coming months ... and on that matter, we will shortly be having the hall facias, which are in poor repair, capped with matching Colourbond sheeting. We have had a great relationship with the Blackwood Lions over a number of years, and sought a contribution to the cost. We were delighted that they have donated the full amount, so work will commence very shortly. You may be aware that we volunteer Saturday morning labour at the Lions Bargain Centre on Shepherds Hill Road for a few months of the year, for which the Lions make a contribution to the Hall funds. I would encourage a visit to the Bargain Centre if you have some time on a Saturday morning, if just for a look around, and maybe a sausage or an egg and bacon sandwich.
The Centre has furniture, books, toys, mattresses, homewares, building supplies, whitegoods ... the list goes on.
Remember to visit the Hall Facebook page. We will be acknowledging the Lions assistance, and you will keep updated on functions and other happenings at the Hall.
