The May Dinner Meeting was a resounding success. Our thanks go not only to all those who attended, but to Alan Howard, who gave a most interesting address, and to Bill Wilson, who handled the arrangements for the dinner. We have an interesting series of meetings lined up for the coming year but we would still appreciate suggestions from our members. Anyone interested in presenting a programme should let us know.
