AGM Wrap Up and the New Committee

Stalls and Events Help – It was noted that lots of you have offered help in this regard and we need to consolidate that list and get in contact.
And of course we certainly need to give a huge thanks to the outgoing co-convenors Tash and Sparkles, and while they are certainly not leaving us, it was important having them step up in the rebuilding phase of the association. Thanks to everyone else who has been involved last year and continues to be involved this year.
A fitting to end our 2011 AGM report is Sparkles great poem;
Ode to Committee.
An ode to committee for the innocently brave
they talked and they talked and they gave and they gave
it took just a sparkle to open the door
then all of a sudden they found more and more
A tentative Tash put her hand in the air,
little did she know.. it would stay there
And without our dear Charles, where would we be?
Answering emails & phone calls and organizing me!
“It’s easy” says Jason on the 5th phone call in,
Yes we love the new website… but how do we log in?
To our mentor Sue, we give a huge thanks
her advice unsurpassed and props for what’s in the bank!
To the fabulous Kristy Lee from far far awale
thanks for all of your inputs and we’ll get onto your swale
To the Carolyn and Kerin who silently care
the Permablitz team are so glad that you’re there!
And our dear Rachel, so lovely & meek,
thanks for supporting us all to Permie Geek
With the future so bright, it’s not time to rest
with my heart and my email forever at Permie West
