Durham County Veteran Ladies' Golf Association

 As there were no nominations for the post of Hon. Secretary at the Vets' AGM in 2009,the Vets committee co-opted Eileen Stothert as Hon. Secretary at their first meeting in December of that year.  This year's AGM (if we could have one) would have been her eleventh!
 Although the term of office is nominally six years, there have still not been any nominations for this demanding job but Eileen announced her retirement earlier this year and stressed that this really is her last year as Secretary. After eleven years of arranging our competitions and meetings, not to mention generally keeping us on the 'straight and narrow', Eileen's decision is understandable to say the least, but she will be sorely missed. During her term of office Eileen has earned our admiration for her efficient organisation and our gratitude for the enormous amount of work she has done on our behalf. We cannot thank her enough, but after the recent virtual meeting of the Vets' committee Eileen was presented with a lovely bracelet, a gift from the Association in appreciation and recognition of this exceptional service. 

 Thank you Eileen 


Eileen Bracelet  .............  Thank you all very much for the very kind gift you bought for my retirement as Secretary. I thought you might like to see it so have attached a photograph.
 Thank you Jennifer for the very nice words at the meeting, I think we made a good team and worked well together which I enjoyed very much.
 I have enjoyed being Secretary for the "Vets" working with different Captains and Committee members over the years. I've made many new friends because of it and hope to carry on helping in some next year as well as playing in the competitions.
 My very best wishes go to Jennifer and Del for next year when I hope normal life will be resumed.
 Once again, many thanks for the gift, it is really appreciated.
