President’s Report October 2017
1. Twilight Talks
The talks have re-commenced during the last two weeks with enjoyable presentations by our Mayor Cr Sam McIntosh and a talk about cinema by Peter Wolfenden of Melbourne. The stimulating program for the following seven weeks is contained in this Newsletter. We have a number of talks by high profile speakers on offer so encourage your friends to come along. People gather from 5pm for drinks and nibbles – it is a great way to end the working week. The cost is $6 for members and $10 for visitors.
2. Pleasant Sunday Afternoon
Congratulations to the ‘Friends of the BMI ‘Committee for the work they put into the major fundraising effort of the Pleasant Sunday Afternoon on 24 September. The live music by Jing Zhang and Nathan Chua, two students from Ballarat Grammar and organized by Bron and Maria Sozanski, was beautiful and relaxing and the afternoon tea was delicious. Sixty people attended and a total of more than $1400 was raised.
3. New Member Offer
As a bonus, any person taking out a BMI membership for the remainder of this year will receive a $10 Max Harris gift voucher.
