We have come a long way this year after having to clean up a very difficult situation which we inherited last year. A lot of time has been spent and we are now in line with the constitution and have worked very closely with Internal Affairs and the Inland Revenue Department. The hard work has paid off and we now have a full committee and our membership has increased. Contrary to some speculation, which has upset some members, we are moving forward and have a full program planned for next year and the remainder of 2013. It is hoped that we and other service organisation in our community will work together in co-operation, not competition -- as this does not portray a good image to our amazing senior citizens. There is so much on offer in our great community there is no need to duplicate services. Richmond Seniors are happy to refer clients to other organisations when needed and co-operate in any way we can. Our mission statement is to empower, enhance and embrace our seniors -- especially the socially isolated members of our community. Margaret Plumstead, President, Richmond Senior Citizens. QUOTE OF THE WEEK ' My boy's been in here like a cyclone. He thrashed the place so we've got the clean-up sorted.
