The June 2011 General Meeting

   Posted by: Leslie McCawley    in Meetings

Our latest branch meeting was held on a chill and windy Saturday, 11 June 2011, which also marked the 555th birthday of Richard’s Lady Wife, Queen Anne Neville.  The Sydney Mechanics’ Institute’s smallest meeting room was filled to overflowing with members happy to be warm indoors.

Opening remarks were made by our Chairperson Judith, who then invited Judy to deliver her first report as our new Treasurer.

In her Secretary’s report, Julia talked about forthcoming meetings and also covered some future social events as Social Secretaries, Jane and Xavier, were unable to attend and offered their apologies.  She was pleased to confirm the venue for the 2012 Branch Ricardian biennial conference, which is to be held next May, in the Mittagong RSL.  Details will be distributed closer to the time.  You can find exact times and other information on future meetings and events in our Upcoming Events section.

Our next general meeting on this coming Saturday, 11 June 2011, promises to be a real treat.

First our member, respected historical novelist Isolde Martyn, will speak on ‘Medieval London’.  Isolde’s talks are always highly appreciated for her thorough research and entertaining presentation.

The day marks also the 555th birthday of Richard’s queen, Anne Neville, so make sure that you come and join us for the party.

The meeting will take place at our normal time and venue, 14h00 at the Sydney Mechanics’ School of Arts, 280 Pitt Street, Sydney.

Looking forward to seeing you!
