° Committee meeting minutes:

Committee Meeting held at 12.30pm, Friday 4th August 2017 at Diss Golf Club.

1. Apologies were received from George Baczkowski, Ken Johnston and Reg Wright

2. Kath B talked to members about the sad, quick illness and recent death of Dennis Meadows who had been the founder of the present Old Dyssean Society.  She would also present the August old Dyssean publication with an item about his life and many activities.

3. Magazine – Nigel B has been working on a CD with a vast content of Diss G S matters and the past recent magazines and he is producing a copy for each member of Old Dyssean Society plus any other interested ex-DGS people.  Following discussion, it was agreed that £5 would be asked for copies of this and that apart from costs this would be donated to EACH-charity.

4. Current balance just under £1,000 with several expenses unpaid, including August magazine and any other expenses which Nigel may have incurred for DVD.  Simon proposed payments of £100 honoraria to Nigel, Kath and himself.  This was agreed by the committee.  (before TN arrived)

5. ODS – future.  Following discussion it was agreed that it would be announced at the AGM on 18th September 2017 that the present organisation would close with a final news-sheet at Xmas time.

6. The Christmas lunch would be organised as in past years – Ann Lorne had booked this for Tuesday 5th December at Diss Golf Club.

7. AOB.  
i) Neil Rout has communicated that he feels the Malawi-village-project is becoming quite self-sufficient which is very good news.
ii) Nigel B explained that there are 3 versions of the CD, a complete version that he will give to Basil and the museum, a general one for ‘we-members’ and a reduced version for the EDP records.
iii) A final OD Committee meeting was proposed for 23-03-2018 and whether to organise a final lunch party on 1st April was briefly discussed.

8. The meeting closed at 1.30pm

Addendum - it has reached the committee that there is some interest in continuing a luncheon-type group of Old Dyssean members in the future and it is hoped that the members who hope to organise this will come forward at the AGM and explain their plans for the future
