THURSDAY – 23 November 2023 (19:30) – “NOTE CHANGE OF DATE”
Speaker: Members’ Pictures and year-end Celebration

We start with the approval of Subscriptions, for 2024. After this Dalene will be putting together
pictures sent in to her by our Members’ – showing their travels this past year. After this we will have
a TBC ‘party’. Drinks will be provided. We ask our Members’ to please bring along a small plate of
eats. We missed out on the TBC Birthday celebration earlier this year, and thought it fitting to have a
celebration at our year-end meeting. If there is load shedding, please bring along a torch.
