Summer 2018 Newsletter

The Summer Program has plenty of great activities as well as forward notices of trips away for next year. Unfortunately there are still a few gaps in the program, and I encourage everyone to consider putting an activity in to fill a gap. This can be done easily via the online form, or by contacting Stuart Almond, the Program Manager, directly.The Club’s 2018 AGM was held on September 15th at the Rhododendron Gardens at Mount Pleasant. Fifty-three members attended and enjoyed a pleasant morning in the gardens with two different walks, and a BBQ lunch.

Most memberships will be due for renewal during the next 2 months.  Reminders will be sent by email.  You can also check your payment date by logging into your account and clicking on “My Subscription”.

The Ramblers Club Christmas Party is on 14th December and this is a reminder that registrations and payment must be received by Monday 3rd December. You can pay online or by cheque. Details are in the Spring 2018 Newsletter. This year the format is slightly different from the buffet that we have had in previous years. The club can provide gluten-free and vegetarian options, but this must be notified to Ros Tierney prior to the cut-off date. This is always an enjoyable night with good food, lots of door prizes and an opportunity to catch up with other Ramblers and meet new friends. We look forward to see you there.

Wishing everyone a very happy Christmas and safe travelling over the holiday period. See you all next year.

Ros Tierney
