Fiftieth (50th) Anniversary
In May 2006 the Society recorded its fifty year anniversary. Management, in consultation with members, has taken a decision to make this a golden year of celebration. Each monthly meeting is to be a celebration of this event and members are an essential part of this celebration. The Committee wants all members to get involved in making these events truly successful and memorable.
