Dear Member,

It was lovely to see so many of you at our AGM, the first face to face meeting of the Society in over two years. Thank you for your continued support.

There were no changes to any Office Bearers or Committee so Stephen Martin will continue as Chairperson.

The meeting was the first opportunity to bestow Honorary Membership on two of our longest serving members, Sarah Goldie and Fiona Ferguson. The first meeting of the Society was held on 15 March 1988 with 40 people in attendance, Sarah is membership number 2 and Fiona membership number 40. All our thanks go to them for all the work they have done over the years.

Our next season starts in September and I have booked the Community Room in Largs Library and have started searching for speakers. Any suggestions on speaker or topic would be much appreciated.

We are hoping to produce a Journal in August so if you have a story you would like to share Ann Tyler would be delighted to hear from you! Ann can be contacted at anndtyler@gmail.com

Best Wishes, Fiona Williamson (Secretary)
