President's Page - May 2009

We have been involved in a number of issues throughout the year 2008. However, the small number of committee members has at times limited our activities. The first two items below are wins and the second two are losses.

President's Page - May 2007

We have reached the fiftieth edition of our newsletter which we currently call “Greenprint”. This has grown from very humble beginnings, nearly thirty years ago, to a more substantial version that we have today. It includes articles, press releases and photographs about the Dandenongs, and feedback from our readers suggests that many people enjoy its contents. Carolyn Ebdon has now taken on the task of being editor and is doing a fine job, following in the footsteps of Betty Hotchin who enhanced the publication with her own distinctive style.

Presidents Page, May 2006

Firstly I apologise that the League only managed to produce one newsletter   Celebrating 21 years of Birdsland last November, were:  (L to R) CEO Shire Yarra Ranges Rob Hauser, Cr. Robyn Hale, Peter Down- ard, Susan Heywood-Downard, Michael Buxton, Betty Marsden, Frank Reid. last year (No. 48).  We are hopeful that this situation may improve later this year.  We have a fairly small Committee and most of its members are still in the work-force which makes their time to help us very limited. Nevertheless we have met fairly regularly during the past year and continued to monitor Shire Council agendas, local papers, respond to letters, telephone calls, e-mails etc. and attend meetings on behalf of the League.  I wish to thank most sincerely the office-bearers and members of the Committee for their support and various contributions over the year.
