Good afternoon. I note that the June newsletter was drafted on a ‘cold wet day’… so again, cold southerlies today! No doubt we all feel for the folk affected by the current bushfires.
Some very interesting activities over recent months and more to follow:
Workplace safety. With a recent grant we are now the owners of a Defibrillator and several of the restoration team have attended a training session.
The purchase of a laptop and projector will enable us to offer better visual presentations on the Catalina and Association matters, also allowing us to be mobile.
Membership. I thank all of you for completing your annual renewal.
Several new member applications have been received and accepted
• Three of these are fellows with trade skills, specifically sheet metal experience which will bolster the restoration team.
• Another new member has come forward to offer her skills with website design and maintenance. Frances is in the process of reviewing what we have set up and will make a submission to the committee shortly…a revamp is in the wind!
Engaging with the local community:
The June newsletter was printed up in booklet form and distributed to some of the retail outlets at Rathmines by one of our members. We will continue to do this, as I believe we need to engage more with the immediate community. This will be an easier task when we are on site at the Park … more about this soon.
