December, the final lottery draw and annual Christmas Dinner for sub-chapter.
Sally is inquiring on local production of ceramic pottery poppy broaches and “in- the-ground” poppy to be used for fund raising for sub-branch.
The Committee had following discussions:
Chairman Trevor Dobson asked for thoughts on an “Old Geezer Tin Man” event starting at Center of The Universe which might have a 100 meter swim, 10 km bicycle ride and a 5 km walk. As with the walk last year, participants would have sponsors for their participation.

Membership Chairman John Burnett reported on impact of on-line membership renewal. Hopefully a report will be received detailing sub-branch membership. In addition, the 200 Baht that has traditionally been held per member at sub-branch on membership renewal is now not available. It was suggested it might be appropriate to have a communication to members asking for a voluntary donation of 200 Baht per member to the sub-branch General Fund.
Chairman Trevor suggested there might be other opportunities for raising awareness of The Royal British Legion such as: The Queen’s 90th birthday in July. Battle of Britain Day; Battle of Jutland Day; and other nationality major event days.
Treasurer report of Sub-branch General Fund Balance of 8,027 Baht.

Chairman Trevor told of Kanchanaburi’s interest if coming to visit the Chiang Mai sub-branch for a social sometime in the current year.

Victor Hayes announced that Sunday, the 14th of February would be the “Big 60” event for him.

The committee meeting ended at 2000 hours.
