Key Points from the 2013 AGM of the Carlton Band Organisation.
Anne Keegan has agreed to be the new Chairman of the organisation.
Our Late President Frederick Straw’s Family made a presentation to the band of a Grand Shield and personal trophies to be presented as a special award to a member who has put in the greatest annual commitment/made the most progress within the organisation. This is a fantastic idea and a fitting tribute to Fred who’s commitment to the organisation was second to none. Along with the trophy came a substantial donation and Fred’s trusty Cortois Cornet which has been specially engraved. The committee will carefully consider how his legacy will be used in a way that is fitting and will be a permanent reminder of our old friend.
Vice President John Hunt steps up to be President of the organisation and Fred’s daughter Elaine has kindly agreed to continue Fred’s link with the band by becoming a new vice-president.
Other key appointments are:-
Organisation and Main band Secretary – Brendan Morris
Training Band Secretary – Heather Fowley
Main Band Treasurer – Andy Allison
Training band Treasurer – David Sheath
Band Master – Paul (Wink) Watson.
Contest Secretary – Dave Rutt
We wish all newly appointed offices success in their new roles.
