A year of change
The chairman, Fiona Robertson, reported that it had been a year of change, at the society's annual general meeting at Gracefield. Dumfries, on Friday, April 10th. In particular, the change in timing of the winter programme from evenings to mornings had been a success, she said. Fiona confirmed that Bertram Aitchison was standing down after eight years as secretary, and the meeting approved the election of Alex Little in his place, also as magazine editor.
Treasurer and membership secretary Chris Otty reported that the society now had 374 members and a healthy bank balance of £5,870.
