Sunday Opening Roster:
A new roster for 2001 is included with this Newsletter. Please find a Sunday when you could be free to help us man the Museum, contact details are included. Your help is always needed and valued.

Members Subscriptions:
Thank you very much to all those members who have paid up their subscriptions for the coming year. There was a very good response after the last Newsletter. A reminder slip is enclosed for those who have not yet responded.

Members Survey:
A members survey form was sent out in 1998, which proved very useful for our records and in the organisation of the Museum. We are enclosing a Members Survey for all newer members who have joined since that date, and we do hope you will kindly fill them in and return to the Museum.

We are sorry to say goodby to member Reece Bell, who has resigned through ill-health. Reece has been an active member for the last three years, dring which time he has been a willing helper at many fetes and fairs and always took his turn on the Sunday openings roster. He was especially helpful at last year's Mitcham Carnival, when he drew the crowds to our stall with his Street Organ. He will also be remembered for his lone visit to Wimbledon Theatre pantomime, when everyone else was in the Studio Theatre! We wish him all the best, and we will miss his many contributions to Museum life.
