THE July meeting of Moruya RSL Sub-branch didn’t happen…not enough members there so a ‘no quorum’ was declared. However there were enough members present, fourteen of them, socially distancing and hands and seats sanitized, to go on with the August gathering, in Moruya Memorial Hall on Tuesday afternoon.
President Kevin Setter was in the chair.
After some talk about the sub-branch finances and insurance there was some mention of the new-style membership cards. Unlike the previous cards the new ones have no end date, something about which Moruya members were not happy. They were told it was apparently among cost-saving moves by Headquarters, it being ‘cash-strapped’.
The meeting was then told secretary Denise Oliver was resigning from that position, due to pressure of other work, with Sandy Paterson taking over for the rest of the year.
The meeting was also told the sub-branch had two new members.
Mr Setter then said it seemed a meeting had been held to establish a sub-branch in Moruya was held a century ago, August 22, 1920, earlier than had been believed. As a result of hearing that, he said, he would be looking into the early days of the sub-branch.
