There were 19 members at a State Branch meeting at Holy Trinity Launceston in August. The decision to hold meetings other than on weekends appears to have paid off.
We observed a minute’s silence in honour of Ken Keygan and Henry Baldwin both of whom have died since our June meeting.
Secretary-Treasurer Max Robinson reported a comfortable financial position and said that through Longford and Moonah further donations had been made to Hearts for Africa. Longford, Moonah and Holy Trinity reported on happenings and all three celebrated St Oswald’s Day in good style. Much time was devoted to considering a submission from Trevor Cowell regarding up-dating the AMS leaflet.
A draft were distributed and members will report to the next meeting in November. Members will continue to study the findings of the ‘Ezra’ groups from the Hobart National Council Meeting and decisions about these will be made in November for reference to National Executive.
Holy Communion was celebrated by Father Doug Edmonds and a wonderful lunch was enjoyed in the Holy Trinity Café – a regular Friday event in that parish.
We are sad to report the continuing ill-health of Martin, husband of our Chaplain, the Revd Jo Pyecroft. We pray for them both through these difficult times.
