Everything is set for our Special General Meeting this Saturday the 18th September 2021 in CADZOW PARISH CHURCH, HAMILTON at 2pm. I hope as many of you as possible will be able to attend as this could turn out to be a very important meeting for the Lanarkshire Society of Organists. It needs all your support to be able to continue.
The reading material you will need for the meeting is available to be sent as an email. Just contact us through the contact page, as I won’t be bringing lots of spare copies with me as I usually do. So could those who have computer and printer access, please print out your copies yourself and bring them along with you. Of course the computer literate and younger members will have them on their phone or laptop which is a great way of doing things!!!!
It would also help, if you receive this email, if you could read the minutes before you come, so that we don’t have to read them at the meeting. Because of Covid, and the huge rise in case numbers in Lanarkshire, it would be sensible to keep the meeting as short as possible.
I look forward to seeing you on Saturday and please remember to bring your masks and hand gel!
This post will not come as much of a surprise. After discussion with our Church hosts and with the Lanarkshire Organists committee surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic we have taken the decision to cancel the Come and Sing scheduled for Saturday 4th April, at Bellshill Central Parish Church of Scotland.

There is sufficient parking if you turn in the church gate to the wee car park and access to the building will be via the hall door up the ramp from the car park.
