has brought us to the slick and very business- like operation that we run today. There are far too many for me to mention for fear of missing someone out. Sonny and Jean Westley and myself are the only remaining members who have had continuous membership from the very first meeting and it was Sonny’s idea that we should commemorate our coming of age. So with the best of information that we have or can remember 2011 will be our official 21st birthday. I now think he wishes he had kept quiet as he has been volunteered to gather and collate all that we can remember of our venues and officers past, present and future so that we do have a record to keep for posterity. It has never ceased to amaze us that so many people have volunteered to further the aims and success of SAM with such enthusiasm and professionalism, over the years and currently, which bodes well for the future success of SAM.
Happy 21st Birthday Rob Day
