Chairman Mike's Mardle,
I was pleased to get a respectable turnout for the AGM in view of the awful weather.. Chairman Mike is back for another
year at the helm, however big changes on the Committee (see back page) and in particular note that Cindy now deals with
Membership. For Events please go to Andy (preferably by email if you have it, and BEFORE the deadline). We are most
grateful to our retiring Committee members for all their work on behalf of Just Friends. I am relieved that we have
managed to get some good replacements and also that June, Derek, Keith, Marie, Trevor and George have agreed to
continue working on your behalf. However, we could still do with two more Committee Members as back up. Could this
be you? Our membership is 383 at the time of writing. We have had fewer new members in the past 6 months. As
announced at the AGM we are going to engage in some publicity, and a modest increase in membership fees is also likely
to be needed to maintain finances in a healthy state. See you, but might not recognise you at the Masked Ball at Horsford
on January 24th.
