The next meeting of SARC will be on Monday, December 10, 2018 beginning at 7:00 pm at the Don Montgomery Centre. Lots of parking at the rear of the building.
Meeting dates for early January (to be confirmed) are planned for January 14, 2019 and February 13, 2019. Arrangements will be made and firm dates for 2019 will be announced later.
At the meeting on December 10 it is hoped that we will either elect or acclaim a new President and Vice-President. Ray will remain as Secretary and Lambert will remain as Treasurer. There may be other vacancies to fill as well.
Other business may be conducted and hopefully there will be a bit of Christmas cheer.
All the best and hope to see you at the meeting. Bring a friend or friends.
