Hobsons Bay Obedience Dog Club Second-hand Book Stall

Hobsons Bay Obedience Dog Club
Fundraising Second-hand Book Stall
Sunday 1 September 9.30 to 11.30 am
 
Dear Beacon Cove Neighbourhood Association,

 On Sunday 1 September, Hobsons Bay Obedience Dog Club Inc. will be hosting a fundraising second-hand book stall, from 9.30am to 11.30am at our club room(Garden City Reserve)

All proceeds from this book stall will be donated to Lort Smith Animal Hospital Pet Therapy Program.

Volunteers from this program carry out regular day visits to hospitals, nursing homes and day care centres with their own specially trained dogs to provide companionship and affection. 

Two of our local facilities (Southport Community Residential Home, and Claremont Aged Care) are happy recipients of visits by a pet therapy dog which is owned and handled by Janette Wilson, Vice President of Hobsons Bay Obedience Dog Club.

Lort Smith Animal Hospital is a not-for-profit organisation and receives no government funding.

Members of BCNA are very welcome to come and peruse the books that we have available for sale.  If any books are not bought on 1 September, we will hold a repeat sale on 8 September.

We have decided that any unbought books after this date will be donated to charities/opportunity shops within the City of Port Phillip.

We hope you can come and join in the fun of our fabulous book sale.

Kind regards

Janette Wilson
Vice President
Hobsons Bay Obedience Dog Club

  • a new act - the Associations Incorporation Reform Act 2012
  • new regulations - the Associations Incorporation Reform Regulations 2012, and
  • new model rules for incorporated associations.
The reforms cover the following areas:

In order to ensure BCNA meets the requirements of the Act, the Committee is proposing that the (attached) rules be adopted at the Annual General Meeting in October 2013. In order to be adopted, the meeting will need to support a special resolution, which means the resolution will need to be supported by 75% of the members in attendance at the AGM.
