Board Room News - November 2016

The Board of Grenfell Bowling Club met at its monthly meeting on Monday November 28th 2016.

The financial reports were presented to the meeting and the club is still trading well. year to date there is just over $7,654.

The financial statements to date are now posted on the notice board for the information of members.

There were four new applications for membership that were approved by the Board and we welcome them to the club.

The staff have completed their fundraising for the Leukaemia Foundation with $3,500 in total raised. This is a credit to the staff and particularly all those who participated in the raffles, 100 club and UGLY Bowls Day. This amount gives around forty five nights of accommodation to patients and family when they need to travel to receive treatment.

The Board is currently reviewing the Constitution in order to keep it up to date and in line with current legislation. Once it is considered by the Board it is likely to be put to members in early 2017 to be discussed and adopted.

The espresso machine has finally packed it in. The Board has resolved to purchase a new machine and staff will receive training and a new coffee menu will be made up for patrons to try our range of coffee.
