Ruth Balleny has been our Treasurer for nearly three decades, and has elected to step down. Everyone at the club is grateful for her extraordinary efforts to keep our finances in order. It has been no mean feat, and we shall miss her integrity and guidance. We wish her well in her retirement.
After a diligent search for a new Treasurer, the board is pleased to announce the appointment of Bob Robinson to the post. Bob brings extensive analytical skills to the position. In addition,his qualification as a Registered Professional Forester will stand him in good stead.
