Well that is it! The club’s 2014 activities are over and it is time to look forward to 2015.
2014 was another successful year for the club and our end of year functions were very well attended.
The Christmas Concert was well received by a capacity crowd. New songs, hilarious skits, wonderful performances and some great cameo roles made for a memorable show. Afterwards Duncan and his team plied everyone with cups of tea and coffee as they enjoyed their snack - the ensuing lucky door prize draw ensured that the afternoon finished off on a high note.
The final lunch of the year was attended by nearly 90 members. Dapto Leagues Club did us proud, the meal was excellent.
Squeezed in between the meal and the raffle draw was a presentation. For once our President was lost for words when he was called up to be presented with his Branch Life Membership by our Vice President. Brian has been president of our club for five years and very much deserved this award.
Following this presentation Edna and Ann got stuck into the raffle with their usual enthusiasm, two tables were over flowing with wonderful prizes donated by members. In fact there were more prizes than attendees so some lucky members went away with two gifts. What a great effort by everyone.
The first meeting of the club in 2015 is:
Thursday, 15th January 2015
We look forward to seeing you all then. Annual membership fees are due at that meeting, it is still only $12 for the year.
In accordance with members’ suggestion we will be recording the next of kin details in our membership file. All that is recorded is a phone number of a relative who you would like to be contacted in the event of an emergency. This is purely optional so is entirely up to you whether you choose to take advantage of this. If you would like such a phone number recorded (land line or mobile) please write it clearly somewhere on your membership envelope.
Please make our hardworking treasurer’s job a little easier in January by enclosing the exact money for your membership subscription. Thank you.
Once again: To all our members…
Have a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
All the best for 2015.

Last Meeting of 2014
A reminder that the last meeting of 2014 is on the 4th December at 10.30am (but don’t forget to come early for a cuppa and a chat).
To celebrate Christmas the fortnightly member’s raffle has been raised to three prizes of $50 each yet the price remains at three tickets for a mere $1. You have to be in it to win it but the chance of you winning is infinitely higher than your chance of winning Lotto. Have a go, you never know your luck.
Time, once again, for the annual Christmas Concert. It’s in Heininger Hall at 1.30pm right behind the Ribbonwood Centre on the Princes Highway. As usual there is a jolly good time on offer followed by a snack with tea and coffee as well as a monster raffle. Get there a little bit early for a good seat.
The Advertiser ran a small piece about the concert in this week’s edition of the paper.
Dapto Seniors thanks the Advertiser for their on-going support.
The Next Meeting
See you all then.
