Salutâtions tout l'monde, acouo eune fais! Thank you to all those who attended our Annual Meeting; it proceeded - sans problièmes - and the 2003 report revealed how much we had done. It was approved and will be presented as the Section's Report in the Annual Bulletin.

It was also reported that the budget request for 2004 was granted which will allow for the publication of some resources. The Committee will continue to serve all your needs, having been returned en bloc!

Our annual programme was discussed and adopted and is attached. It was agreed that we should concentrate on the following:

Another curious pronunciation on the radio - Rue de la Poynter - rather than La Rue de la Pointe! We shall keep trying! Our first meeting will be on Wed. 4

À bétôt,

John Clarke (Président, 873556).
Ralph Nichols (Ségrétaithe, 862756).
