Happy New Circling Year
On Thursday 18th April 2013 the Stourbridge and Halesowen District Ladies Circle held our 6th AGM at the Wittington, Kinver. After a good meal and catch up we got down to business with each of the executive presenting their reports on what an excellent year it had been under the chairmanship of Faye.
Not only had there been some great social events – an outing to the Worcester Races, a jewellery making class and wine tasting at Halfpenny Green to name just a few, Faye had also managed to raise an impressive £650.01 for her chosen charity.
Throughout the year Faye has supported the Riding for the Disabled Association raising funds by having a cake stall at the Stourbridge Carnival and a Fashion Show where circlers, friends and family got not only to view but also buy some wonderful clothes from well-known high street stores at really low prices.
As part of Faye’s last duties as Chairman she also had the exciting task of inducting 2 new members, Claire and Rachel, which means we now have a total of 16 members in the Stourbridge and Halesowen District.
In addition to celebrating Faye’s year as chair we also saw Karen awarded with Circler of the Year and Julie named as Top Dog (an award given to the circler who has attended the most events).
Once the reports were done it was time to elect the new executive for the upcoming year, the posts being decided as follows:
Chairman – Karen
Vice Chairman – Jess
Social Secretary - Sharon
Secretary – Claire
Treasurer – Ballie
Membership Officer – Becky
Publicity Officer – Jess
The new Chairman, Karen, then confirmed that she would like to make Adele her President for the next year with Cath and Karen (incoming Chair of Stourbridge Tangent) as her honourees.
Our next event is the diary planning meeting on 9th May at Pizza Express. This is when we all have a say and chose what events we want to happen over the next year. So if you are interested in Ladies Circle this is a great event to come to, not only do you find out what we get up to you will meet a wonderful collection of women who all have the same goal – to have fun.
