Message from President
we are all in lock down and quickly learning to cope with what
is a new experience for many of us. I have bought paint,
building materials and other items so I can do all those jobs
around the house that I never seem to have had time for, or more
truthfully made time for.
the Napier Presidents met with AG Gary Hemmings last week
together with DGs elect Grant Spackman and Ross Pinkham. All
agreed that the main thing we can do at this time is to keep our
communication channels open. Bob and Janey have a come up with
a bulletin format and this will be be sent to all members on a
regular basis. If you have a contribution for the bulletin,
please send to Bob and Janey, maybe tips on how to cope in
trying times or an interesting story that you have heard. I
have also asked Directors to keep in contact with their
committee members and all members are welcome to contact me.
board will continue to manage the business of the club, albeit
in a different way. Lastly, if you need help, please ask, often
we are good at offering help, but not always willing to ask.
Please let me or a board member know if there is something that
you would like help with. Please also let us know if you are
available to offer help. With a small pool of members, I am
sure we can cover most requests.
safe, keep in contact and good luck as you manage your lock
