Dear Friends,

Welcome to the Summer Edition of STAGEDOOR and as usual it’s a bumper packed edition with plenty to read.  All we need now is the long awaited arrival of the Summer Sun, a nice drink and you can sit out in the sun with our Magazine.

Recently, over 80 members and friends gathered at the City Hotel in Glasgow for our Annual Glasgow Lunch and this year we had the pleasure to honour Glen Michael for his wonderful showbiz career.  Bill Green has written an article on the Lunch and it is enclosed in this edition.

We have a number of events listed in our Forthcoming Attractions pages which you can find towards the back of this magazine.  Please let Bob know in good time if you wish to book up for any of the events listed.  All our events are planned well and are always a good laugh and they gives members a chance to catch up for a natter as well.

Finally, can I please take this opportunity to remind all the members that our membership year runs from 1 September to 31 August each year.  At a previous Committee Meeting, it was agreed at present not to increase the Annual Subscription even although costs are all mounting around us eg postage, printing costs etc.  In order for us to keep the Subscription Rate at the agreed cost, can we ask that all memberships are paid at the agreed time of Renewal which is the month of  September every year.  If all memberships are paid on time it keeps us from using Reserves which we have.  I don’t really like to mention this too often, but through announcements like this have to be made though our magazine which every member receives. 

Yours in fun

Derek
