Reminders: Four items this first walking month.

  2. Please note new 2018 Name Tags will be provided on payment of Membership Subscriptions of $5 per person that are due in February each year, and usually may be paid to the Treasurer or Peter or Heather Haughton. Always wearing a name tag makes it much easier for others to greet you in this friendly club, and it encourages people to say hello to you. If you need a free replacement or a free second copy of a 2018 name tag to keep in another car, ask Peter.

3) To add your name to the e-mail distribution list, or to change your e-mail address, please send an e-mail to Peter at: pje@haughton.id.au
