8).  President – Vinod Parekh announced regarding the invitation from the Lions Club party Sunday – 10/2 from 1.30 to 5.00 pm.  He read out the names and informed that any member named cannot attend, then they should inform him.  A special Table will be reserved for them.  He also said that the Table number for the extra 4 invitation from the Vanik Council will be given later.

He also informed members that our time of gathering on Thursdays is from 10.30am to 4.00 pm.  It has been noticed that members come earlier than that and then complain about the Hall not being heated.  He said that everyone must appreciate that it takes an hour for the Hall to be heated.
