With less than a week to the date when we should have been formally voting you in as our new vice chairman, the natural world has contrived to put the mockers on that!
However I feel that it is important that Association business continues irrespective of what stands in our way, and perhaps even more that the functions of the committee are maintained in these trying times.
I know that the membership appreciate the value of a willing volunteer and that as a still serving Armourer you are a valuable bridge between the old and bold dinosaurs of the current membership and the new members who are our future. We will rely on you to guide us in how we will be able to maintain the Associations relevance to the Armourers of the future.
I am aware that you have already started helping by arranging with the Marsh Farm Hotel for our 2020 deposit to be carried forward to next year, and that you will no doubt have many ideas on how we can best serve the current and future members of the Association.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for being the willing volunteer and I look forward to the opportunity of meeting with you, again, to discuss the Association’s future over a drink.
I hope that all is well at Lyneham, though I m sure the virus has thrown up some challenges that were never foreseen when you signed on the dotted line.
Stay fit and stay healthy. Please pass on my best wishes to all Armourers.
