Our 2018 Meetings

At the AGM, there were some changes to the committee of the ODFHS.   After 13 years in post, Bill Huyton resigned as Chairman and the position was accepted by Kate Hurst.  Bill is now termed "Chairman Emeritus"

Also thanked for their work were Don Holt and Jean Gidman who have stepped down after devoting their time to the Society for many years.
