  1. PRESIDENTS ADDRESS

 

Welcome to you all and thank you for attending the 10th Annual General Meeting.
Before I start my address,I would like you to spare a moment for some of our members who are ill in hospital orare no longer with us especially one of our founder members and long time president Colin Ranson.  …………………
Thank you

Again, we have had another year of success with our trips and events all thanks to the hard work of the committee and support from the members.
The committee are working hard again this year to give you more trips and events which I am sure you will enjoy.

The association cannot exist without the support of the members and I am sure you will continue to support the committee with their endeavours.
We have set up a new website locrispin-dca.eu which you can log onto, to view the up and coming events.

All events will be posted on the website and members can now register on line if they wish to attend any event. Members will still have to come to the Tavern on a Friday to pay fees and monies for events.
Before we go on, I want to let you know with regret I am resigning as President from the committee.
Thank you to the committee for their support in my short time in office and also to the members who have also given their support.
I wish you all success for the future of the association and with continued support it can only get better.
