Thank you to the sax section for taking the initiative and volunteering to look after returning our band room back to its original state after rehearsals until Christmas. It is sincerely appreciated.
Our Annual General Meeting will be held next Tuesday starting at 7:15 pm. I dont anticipate it lasting longer than an hour at which point we will have a short break and then continue with our regular rehearsal. Although most of you should have already received a copy, Ive enclosed to the weekly email our planned AGM agenda, the 3 x financial documents we intend to present and a copy of last years AGM Minutes for your review. If you have any significant concerns or questions please email me before the meeting so we may prepare an adequate response and provide it at the AGM. We plan to use the Smart board system in our band room so if youd like a hard copy of any of the documents for your use during the meeting, we invite you to print it out at home and bring it along to the meeting.
