State con­fer­ence speak­ers con­firmed

Midwest Times - - NEWS - Gwen Wal­ton

There was good at­ten­dance at the fi­nal meet­ing for the year of the lo­cal branch of Na­tional Se­niors who met at the Queen El­iz­a­beth II Cen­tre on Fri­day, De­cem­ber 14.

A num­ber of items con­cern­ing se­niors were dis­cussed.

Con­cern was ex­pressed re­gard­ing the pos­si­bil­ity of the re­moval of frank­ing cred­its. This pos­si­bil­ity has been raised in the lead-up to next year’s Fed­eral elec­tion.

A full re­port was given on plan­ning for the 2019 Na­tional Se­niors State Con­fer­ence which will be hosted by the Ger­ald­ton branch and held in July next year. Guest speak­ers have been con­firmed, with one speak­ing on the his­tory of the Batavia. It is ex­pected that del­e­gates from a num­ber of branches are plan­ning to at­tend the con­fer­ence. A com­mit­tee to un­der­take the or­gan­i­sa­tion of this event was elected at a pre­vi­ous branch meet­ing.

Fol­low­ing the meet­ing, mem­bers were en­ter­tained with a very en­joy­able bracket of many songs by Joy and Yvonne.

This was fol­lowed by a most en­joy­able and lav­ish bring-and-share Christ­mas lun­cheon.

As the branch does not meet in Jan­uary the next meet­ing will be held at the QEII Cen­tre on Fri­day, Fe­bru­ary 8 at 10am. All lo­cal se­niors are most wel­come.
