NEW PRESIDENT TRISH SMITH

Message from our incoming President:

My first duty as president is one that I am very happy to perform, that is to thank June for her wonderful leadership , all her hard work Her efficiency and energy( The Duracell Bunny as Barrie describes her  ) that she has displayed throughout this past year it will make her a very hard act to follow . Please June accept these flowers as a small token of the club’s appreciation for all that you have done

I am honoured and a little apprehensive to be standing here as your President as I have already said June will be a hard act to follow but I will do my best. However I  will need a lot of help and support from the members so please if you have any ideas or thoughts on how to keep our club strong and increase the membership please bring them forward I want each and every member to realise their importance in the club and feel that our club is open to new ideas

I know that I am only going to be around for a few months so I need to make those months count….with your help

My chosen charity this year will be Staffordshire Women’s Aid and I know that domestic abuse is very close to our hearts in this club I will talk to you further about my thoughts of what we can do for them at the next business meeting

My motto for the year is : WE MAKE A LIVING BY WHAT WE GET BUT A LIFE BY WHAT WE GIVE . Which is a quote by Winston Churchill

I do truly believe that the more you put into life the more you get out of it  I would like to encourage each and every member to take a more active role in our clubs activities and hopefully , individually you will get more out , and feel more involved with the club and, the club as a whole  will benefit from members increased involvement.
