Joy brought us up to date with where organisation of the ACMF Cocktail Party is up to. Joy encouraged members to attend next Thursday night 7 December 2017 at the MEC. Tickets are $45 per head and available from herself or online via the MEC. A big apology for last week’s bulletin from the Bulletin Editor. It was a shocker. Wrong dates, incorrect spelling and more. Will have to put it down to an off week. Will try for much better this week. Neil Hanington spoke on the CCTV and what is currently happening. He advised that NationWide Security will be here next week to carry out checks. He will advise of the outcome at a later date.
