President Ron asked each Director to set out their Committee’s direction for the coming year. As a rank and file member it’s sometimes hard to know about everything that’s going on in the Club. But the list of projects that each Director told us about was impressive. It’s a list, so you might find it boring, but just imagine the difference we’ll make if we accomplish all this.
