Tisdale and area Superannuates;
annual to Hell with the bell meeting

Tisdale, Friday, August 29, 2008 by: Darlene McCullough

On Wednesday August 27th , 53 of us gathered at the Riverside Golf Course Lounge for our annual To Hell with the Bell breakfast on the first day of classes.

President Bob Donnan welcomed everyone and Darlene McCullough passed out the newsletters.
Past President Ken Thurston donated the wooden box he had made for the membership growth awards - the bell and three bases - that we have earned by increasing our membership by 10% each time.

Darlene had brought her Honorary Life Membership certificate and citation to share with the members. She thanked them for nominating her, and Ken Thurston, Bob Donnan, and Maureen Donald for writing the nomination. Bob also read the citation at the banquet of the Annual General Meeting held in Saskatoon where Darlene was presented with the certificate by STS Provincial President Siegrid Schergel..

Darlene gave an update on our financial situation and read a letter of thanks from Miriam Spenrath for our kind donations to the Caravan of Hope - an organization that helps people in Central America who are struggling to survive under conditions of basic human deprivation.

Maureen Donald asked members who were interested in attending the dinner theatre in Sylvania in November to let her know so that reservations can be made.

President Bob Donnan then outlined the proposed outing in September - a trip to Prince Albert to have lunch at Amy's then a tour of three historic churches in downtown PA.

Darlene moved a vote of thanks to Bob for the great job he always does with the editing and printing of the yearly newsletter.

And so with a hearty breakfast followed by a lot of socialising - we were off - some to home and others to a round of golf.

Thanks to the staff at the golf club for providing for us so adequately.
