New England Veteran & Vintage Car Club’s well-attended AGM saw the election of new office bearers, bringing in a few changes.

We welcome Bob Rogan as our new president, supported by his executive team of Dave Ware (secretary), Clive Cooper (vice-president), and Frances Thomas (treasurer). Registration officers are Ken Poulsen and Don Ellis, while Des Brauer is the events coordinator.

Appreciation was expressed to outgoing president Warwick Frith who has led the club so capably for many years.

The club voted to donate $1000 from the proceeds of our rally to the Soldier On charity.

The meeting was followed with an enjoyable run to Torrington.

Members are reminded that our next meeting on December 3 will be followed by our Christmas party at the Wallangarra Railway Station. Numbers to Frances, please.
