Last Meeting
Guest Speaker - Sir Anand Satyanand, Former Governor-General of NZ 
Our distinguished guest arrived in the car park just as I arrived.  Former Governor-general, District Court Judge, Ombudsman, Chancellor of Waikato University with numerous other achievements, Sir Anand Satyanand was dressed not "in a scarlet robe trimmed with vermin" but in a charcoal suit.  Somewhat nervously I asked how I should address him.  "Just call me Anand" came the reply.  "And I'm Susan," said his wife.  He was our guest speaker for the night.

Parting Thought 
Glenda Barratt provided the parting thought at the end of the evening - 

 Every time one person chooses a new way to respond to the challenges of life, each time an individual chooses a new option, that person then becomes a living bridge for all the others who choose to follow in that person’s path" - Greg Braden

Please study and plan ahead, especially if your Committee needs to provide an updated Report.  A reminder that it's also your responsibility to find a replacement if you are unable to fulfil your duty.
