Dear Friends of the Hall:

If this newsletter seems a little late this month—it’s because it is!

The main reason is that we did not have an October Board Meeting because, while we have some projects on-going, no new decisions seemed to be needed. Our next meeting will be on Thursday, November 7th and I will bring you up to date after that.

In which case—why send out this newsletter?

The major reason is that because of a conflict in Community Hall bookings, and because our Treasurer Hank Reid is away until near the end of November, we have changed the date of our Annual General Meeting from Sunday, November 24th to Saturday, December 7th at 2:00 p.m. in the Hall. I do hope that as many of you as possible will attend since there are going to be a few significant changes announced at that time as well as our annual stock-taking.

While I’m here, I would like to extend my thanks (once again) to the Regional District of Nanaimo and Vanessa Craig, our RDN Director, for giving us yet another grant. This grant will help cover the cost of a new (and more efficient) dishwasher and sanitizer for the Hall kitchen. We will do our best to have it installed before the start of the busy Christmas season.

That’s all for now, folks.
