December 2018 Chairman's Chat
First of all, can I say "thank you" to the Sections who completed and returned the survey sent out last month. We have some really interesting and quite different suggestions, as you will see from the separate article. As always, we will do our very best to provide most of what you asked for, but this may take a little time.
At our Executive meeting we discussed the fact that, in FOCUS last month, we had three articles (excellent publicity for the Centre). However, each one had a different heading. We know that our official charity title is The New Milton & District Community Association but that is rather a mouthful so could anyone writing an article for publication please note that the heading should be The Community Centre so that people get used to using that name.
Our last Cake Day of the year will be held in the Common Room on Friday, 14th December, when Editor/Secretary Phyllis will play some Christmas music and the Art Group will hold a mini Art Exhibition. They have some really talented artists, so some of their recent creations will be on view to see and buy. There will also be a raffle and Father Christmas will attend. Come along and bring a friend to enjoy the morning.
The Ukulele Band concert is on 12th December. I understand they are really great, so join us for an evening's entertainment.
I end by thanking everyone at the Centre for their help and support during my first six months as Chairman, and wishing members, hirers and affiliates a very Happy Christmas with good health and happiness to follow in the New Yea.
