August Club Meeting

August 9, 2021 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm

Our monthly club meeting will be on Monday 9 August at the usual venue (Church Street Bible Chapel Hall, corner Church Street and Avenue Road, Timaru), starting at 7:30. All welcome!

This month it will be something a bit different. We want your photos of club trips and events, so we can sort out some to use at the 50th anniversary next year and in a booklet being produced for the event.

Our President, John Hyland, has sent through the following information which explains it all …

Hi Folks,

Every month for the last couple of years I have been coming up with a guest speaker or idea for our monthly Club Meeting. This month we could possibly have a few more participants – you! Read on to see how you can help …

We have the SCTC 50th Anniversary coming up on 12th March next year, and are hoping to have photos – old and new – shown on a large TV screen and just rolling over in the background at the event. To do this we need your photos. Remember those old prints and photo albums we used to have before the age of digital photography? Well, now is the time to hunt them out, blow the dust off them and bring them along to our August meeting next week!

My intention is for your photos and albums to be put out on tables for you all to wander round and look/laugh at. We are going to have it set up so photos can be electronically copied onto the club’s laptop. From there they will be put into a suitable format for use at the celebrations next year. A few people I have already spoken to are keen to bring their photos, so dig yours out too – the more photos the merrier!

Whether your photos are in albums, old envelopes, the original packets (like mine!) or on a computer or memory stick etc. – no worries! Just hunt them out, bring whatever you have (regardless of the format) and we will be able to display them. We will have two laptops there. Seeing these photos may just rekindle some old memories and provide inspiration for places the club can venture to again!

There should be enough time between now and the meeting next Monday night for you to go through your cupboards/drawers/spare rooms/attics/hard drives etc. and unearth those old photos. Once you have found them, dust them off, reminisce, have a chuckle about how young everybody looked and how fashions have changed, rekindle your fond memories of trips and where you went – then bring them along to the meeting. No doubt there will also be a few good stories and anecdotes – so make sure Neville Guthrie gets to hear of them, as he is in the process of producing a commemorative booklet for next year’s celebrations.
See you at the meeting!

John Hyland (President)
