Rick, Sam and others interested,
Since taking over the Helm of Noah's Arc, Paul, myself, and the rest of your Committee, have been working tirelessly, behind the scenes, to maintain the Standards set by Bob, and his Committee ( Not an easy task to follow, but we are getting there ).
The Shop has now been revamped and is being run by Daz Walker ( AKA Red Pudsey ) you can now log on to the Shop through this Site, and Order away merrily, along with the items already available to you, we are also looking to increase availability and choice, as Bob and his Committee continued to do.
The Annual Draw Tickets have been designed, sourced, and are in print, when they arrive the will be sent out to you all, along with the First Newsletter from your New Committee, which is currently being looked over by them, for any last minute Revisions, or additions.
The Sale of these Draw tickets and sale of Raffle Tickets on the Reunion Weekend, is Virtually the only income that your Club has, and this is used for all our Benefit at the Reunions in providing the best entertainment that the Funds will allow...To that end, can I ask you all, to Please, Dig deep when your tickets arrive, and Support your Club, Noah's Arc.
As I said we are waiting for the Draw Tickets to arrive, and the Newsletter to be Finalised and Printed, then put into 600 odd envelopes, with a stamp ( Even more money to come out of the Club funds !)
I think the Newsletter should be on its way to you in the next week or so !
And Finally, the Northern Reunion, and Remebrance Sunday, take place at Barton Grange, 7th/8th November 2015
There are, to date, some 60 or so of us that have Purchased tickets either for the Hotel and meal, or just a ' security' entrance ticket to the bar (£3 )
The important part of this weekend is Sunday 8th November, when the Ashes of DRAC, Eric Hill, and Tpr Thomas are interred into the Regimental Columbarium at St Lawrence Church.......Please try to make it if you can !
Hope that has filled you in, a little, on what is happening behind the scenes with your new Committee.
More will follow in the Newsletter ( I'm not licking the stamps, OR Envelopes!
