A.G.M. 20th. SEPTEMBER 2008
HISTORY : the collaborative effort by a number of members should see this section ready for posting on the website reasonably soon.
FUTURE EVENTS : to publicize this year's ("Remembering 1958") reunion, members were asked to post their own invitations and a number did so. We hope that this will continue for future events.
RECENT EMAILS & PRAYER REQUESTS : members' messages have continued to be publicized, whilst Rualink has been "cascaded" only to those members who have specifically requested this service.
GALLERY : the Webmaster has asked members to send in photographic records of our reunions 1996-2007. Some years are very well covered, notably the inaugural 1996 reunion, the 75th anniversary of Shrigley's opening, 2004, and the Cemetery Book Launch in 2007. However, other years are not well documented and we ask members to please send in photographs.
SALESIANS AT SHRIGLEY : this document, inaccurate in some details, will be amended.
LINKS : recently added are Salesian Cooperators and the Overseas Volunteers (BOVA). If members think other Links would be of interest, please send in details.
Finally I would like to repeat an Association vote of thanks to the Webmaster, Keith Dransfield. I shall continue to pursue and persecute him with new ideas, possibly an ARCHIVES section and a STOP PRESS/NEW TODAY slot. To members I say watch this space! Click on to shrigleyassociation.org.
