Officers' Reports


Felice (Deputy) Read report to meeting - we look to be in good shape !! - Well done. Meeting confirmed decision to spend over $100 on serving and cooking trays for cooks guild - Constanzia and Marie have found some good cheap trays. Meeting also noted the funds spent on new regalia for lists and for thank you present.


Catrin has a new deputy, Bianca, also the subscription is due soon for the Herald's Magazine.


Nothing to report, new constables in training, collects indemnities not warrants (correction to previous minutes)


(Finnian for Cornelius) Need date for Bacchus Woods war also some organisation needed for Shire Militia going to Festival: 3 groups going Ventbarr, Co. of St Michaels and Militia. Cornelius requested that Shire meeting be moved to A & S hall but meeting felt that meeting would interfere with A & S as it did in the past which is why it is held separately now.


Nothing to report.
