AHLTA AGM and Christmas Party 2018

We celebrated another great year of AHLTA with the AGM and end of year party at The Canterbury Leagues Club on Sunday 9th December.

We were pleased to see 34 of or members and families in attendance. The AGM began at 12 noon with a roundup of the year from outgoing President, Jerry McNamara. After all positions were declared vacant, we received 9 offers of support for the new committee. This is great going forward as we will have more bodies to help organise events and reach out to our membership. You can view the minutes of the AGM at

We also had an opportunity to thank three of our outgoing committee. Firstly, Jerry McNamara, President, who has served on the committee as Treasurer and President for an incredible 9 years; Susan Woodhouse, our Treasurer, who has kept our books balanced so well for 3 years and Babak Jafari, who is our media and Bugle Editor (and all-round terrific helper!), who has worked with us for 5 years. We thank them all for their service and wish them well for the future.

After the meeting it was party time! The room was set up with tables of 8 so we could all easily chat. Drinks were served and there was a buffet of roast beef, steamed fish, butter chicken, roasted vegetables, salads and desserts. Many of us went back for seconds!

We were fortunate to have been donated 4 terrific raffle prizes which were drawn at the end of the meal. Thank you Lynn and Bob Greaves for 3 and Winifred for the chocolates. the Winners included Rita, Nora and others. AHLTA water bottles and pens were available for the attendees as well as chocolates donated by the Boccanfuso family.

It was a lovely day of support, friendship, fun and of course great food. Thanks to the Canterbury Leagues Club for allowing us to hold the event in the club and making us feel so welcome. Some pictures of the day below and all pictures can be viewed on our website
