The Annual General Meeting of Alfreton Male voice Choir saw George Curley unanimously elected as President for his 33rd year and we thank him for his continued support.
Derrick Hesketh stepped down as Chairman after 18 years of dedicated service in the position, for which the choir has been very grateful. Derrick presented his report giving thanks to present and past members and citing words from Psalm 40:3 “He put a new song in my mouth, a song of praise to our God”. He ended with a verse from the ABBA classic, Thank you For The Music (spoken not sung).
Mick Mullarkey was nominated and elected as Chairman and took over the meeting. Mick gave thanks to Derrick and proposed that he be made Vice President and an Honorary Life Member of the choir. The proposal was unanimously carried and Derrick expressed his gratitude and pride for the privilege and looked forward to continuing to enjoy singing and socialising with the choir.
Vice Presidents Stan Green, Colin Thornton and Alan Randle were re-elected.
Secretary John Stamp was re-elected and presented a report highlighting the hard work and dedication of the committee members, giving thanks to Palmer Morewood for hosting our practices and meetings and listing the engagements of 2019.
Treasurer David Smith was re-elected and presented his report of the years fiscal activity. Income and expenditure has maintained a balance, though this has been made possible by the addition of the bonus ball lottery administered by Ken Aspinall. Our performances in 2019 allowed us to contribute £1,719.00 to charity as well as enjoyment to the audience. 2020 already has a busy schedule so will, hopefully, enjoy a level of income.
Librarian Tony Hopkins was re-elected and presented a report on the years activity.
There were 5 nominations for Ordinary Committee Members. Although there is only a requirement for 3 members, according to the Constitution, it was agreed that the enthusiasm should be encouraged and all five were elected. See above.
