What Does Membership Involve?

Members contribute, through their annual subscription to the financial performance of the club.  We meet fornightly for our regular meetings.  We are also assigned to one of the clubs service committees and this will often entail another meeting during the month.

Club Meetings

Club meetings are held on the 1st and 3rd Wednesday of each month. Members gather from 6 pm in readiness for the meeting to start at 6.30 pm.  The meeting begins with dinner which is prefessionally catered. The meal is normally followed by a guest speaker.  There are also some club formalities and members are rostered on for some duties that ensure the smooth running of the club.  We also have special meetings celebrating particular events like Christmas and the Club's birthday.
