At the AGM today there were eight members present which was one short of a quorum. Under our rules, the meeting was therefore postponed to the same time and place one week later so it will now be held at 2:00 pm next Sunday 27th September at the Community Centre. Unfortunately, our rules do not allow us to count the three visitors who want to join as members.
There is no requirement for a quorum at this postponed meeting on the 27th but we certainly don’t want to have just two or three people. So it would be great if as many members as possible could come along. The agenda must be exactly the same as the meeting today so it will just be a matter of electing a committee and accepting the proposed changes to the constitution. Should take about 15 minutes.
The AGM will be followed by a Community Meeting which is basically a committee meeting that everyone is welcome to attend.

There will be another Wildflower Walk next Sunday 13th September. Karena and Ray Silbereisen have kindly opened their property to us. The walk will start at 2pm, at 18 Altona Dve Herron. Please bring your own afternoon tea. The bush is really getting going now so there will be great flowers to see. Hopefully the sun will be out to show off our lovely native flowers at their best.
LCHPSA has gained funding from Dept. of Sport and Recreation through Lotterywest for a new and extended concept plan for a Lake Clifton Lime Kiln Precint development. The plan will be to create a day use area at the Lime Kiln, walk trails to the lake and the area of the settling ponds and a walk trail through the bush along part of the old railway line embankment. Any people interested in helping to form a reference/consultaton group please contact Jenny 0428343028.
The Shire of Waroona has been successful in their application for a grant from the Emergency Services Levy to build a new 2 bay fire shed at Lake Clifton. The old shed has served us well but is definitely not up to current standards. We are aiming to have it ready for summer 2016/7.
The new station will increase the brigade’s capacity to protect our community. It will also be much more comfortable and hopefully will encourage more people to join.
We are very happy to report that Sensei Glen Baker has eight members in his Kofukan Karate club and the first belt grading night will be on 24th September.
Kofukan is a traditional style Karate, focusing on the study of martial arts and self-defence in a positive family friendly environment. The club operates on Thursday nights, from 6pm to 7pm during school terms. This club is run as a not for profit organisation and fees are kept to a minimum to cover running costs. Anyone wanting to try Karate is welcome to a two week free trial before joining up.
For more information please contact Glen on 0408 351 900 or email email@example.com or visit https://www.facebook.com/KofukanKarateAustraliaMandurahDojo
Apart from its self defence value, Karate teaches respect and discipline which help in all aspects of life, including getting and keeping employment, prevention of domestic violence and just making better citizens.
The Annual General Meeting of LCHPSA will be held on Sunday 20th September at 2:00pm. Notices have been sent to all current members but everyone is welcome.
We really do need some more members to demonstrate to the two shires (Mandurah and Waroona) that we represent the community. You don’t have to do anything – just being a member really does help.
Nominations for Committee positions MUST be to the Secretary by 13th September firstname.lastname@example.org
