Congratulations to Johanna Bathgate on her election for a second term as President of Urunga Women's Bowling Club following a successful inaugural year. Other positions filled at the club's annual meeting were Vice-President Jean Dew; Treasurer Judi Rowe; Match/Selection Committee Helen Hoffman (Chairman), Joy Lambert, Isabel Pettit, Robyn Pettit; Social Committee Noela McCabe (Chairman), Margaret Safe; Delegate to MNCDWBA Johanna Bathgate; Communications Officer Pat Chapman.

As nominations were not received for a second vice-president, a secretary and sufficient nominations for the match/selection and the social committees, expressions of interest are invited and should be lodged with the Acting Secretary Lynne Tarrant by July 18 for consideration by the management committee.

Each year the women's bowling club makes a donation to a charity, and this year the charity selected was Macksville Palliative Community Care. Pictured is President Johanna Bathgate (right) presenting a cheque for $500 to Bev Cloake accepting on behalf of Macksville Palliative Community Care. It has been decided that the charity for next year will be the palliative care unit based at Bellingen hospital.
