ITEM ONE


You will have noted from our Chairman’s earlier correspondence you were asked to make a special effort to offer yourselves or nominate others to stand as
ADA
COMMITTEE MEMBERS
Only four meetings each year,
meetings by mutual arrangement agreed in advance currently held mid week from 5-7pm.
Only those members more than 80 kilometres distant
from Dorking will be excused for not standing! (50 miles in old money)
Please contact our Secretary with your ideas and/or offers sheilasandford@btinternet.com



ITEM TWO


NEW MEMBERS
We are always seeking new members

We are realising that perhaps past pupils are not immediately interested in maintaining contacts with their friends at school immediately they leave and venture towards their careers and families.

But as their coiffure fades to shades of grey they begin to look back at the
‘good old days’ at school.

The Association is here to provide links with those days in today’s world.

We are sure that you know of friends at school, perhaps a year or two either side of the path you trod. Please help to recruit them to the Association.

To assist we are offering a reward of
£50 (yes FIFTY)
(payable to you as cash, cheque, vouchers or donated to your charity of choice)
to the member who recruits most new members (more than two to qualify!) between NOW and 1st September 2010
Please contact our Membership Secretary memsec@hazeldenfamily.com

If you pass us the names and addresses we will send out Membership application forms to you or directly to the prospective member.

If you need to entice your friends then we still have a small supply of the
previously promoted offer; CDs (pack of four) DCGS Choir Brahms’ Requiem, Haydn’s Nelson Mass, Mozart’s Requiem and Mendelssohn’s Hymn of Praise
and DVD Thanksgiving Memorial Service for the Life of Dr Derek Moore Morgan.
These are available at £10 each for non members and £5 each to members.

We look forward to your responsesThank you
