A good crowd arrived (some with partners in tow) for our AGM/Gala Evening on a warm Wednesday evening. It was great to see a few ‘long-lost’ members such as Lanz von Horsten (invariable away on some safari or other ….) and Martin Lyons (usually on a ‘project’ somewhere). Nettie welcomed everyone and got the evening started by going straight into the Chairman’s Report (the short version is to be found elsewhere on this blog), which was well-received by the members. One particularly pleasant ceremony took place – that of conferring Honorary Membership on Nicole Palmer!
During the break, fabulous eats and drinks were consumed, and lively conversations held.
Steve had put together an audio-visual of members’ images submitted during the year, and it just brought home to me the outstanding work that our members do – well done!
It was fun to see the HPS AV made by Irmel some years ago … we had a good laugh!
A number of other audio-visuals were shown, before everyone left, well satisfied with the evening.
