Chairman Bob Saunders reports:
I need to also inform you all that the
next AGM is to be hosted by our branch in 2013 on the 9th of March,
John Stephens was nominated for and was conferred an Extra Mile Award for his outstanding service to our branch as branch secretary. John and Iris, we mean this from the bottom of our hearts when we say thank you and congratulations on an exceptional job. That the task was carried out with such gusto and determination under very trying personal circumstances, had to and has now been commended in the best way possible through the award from the National body. Congratulations John.
We have I believe established our Bona Fides in this regard. I am extremely proud to announce that we have been given permission by MA to make these photographs available for viewing by all, on our website. This means that not only do you now have access to the photographs of churches, gravestones and funeral pamphlets via the internet on our website, but that it will soon be augmented by the Family Bible photographs as well.
Coming back to the AGM of 2012, grateful thanks are extended to e-GSSA team ably led by Alta Griffiths and assisted by Judy Meyer and their able team, for the job of successfully hosting the AGM in the middle of nowhere. Uniondale is very far away from us up here in Gauteng, but it really is the quaintest little town if you take the time to look a little closer. There are some beautiful buildings and the place has a rich history too. Thank you e-GSSA for the change of scenery and a very successful AGM in great surroundings and a fantastic atmosphere.
