110 Battery 50th Birthday Celebrations 10 May 2015 

Dear Members,

Yesterday, while working, I suddenly thought, Christmas has almost arrived on our doorstep and it made me realise how quickly another year has gone by. Itís that time of the year to look forward to a well-earned rest and time out from the hard work and worries of normal day to day living. Sharing the festive season with family and friends allows us to reflect upon the successes each of us have achieved during this past year.  Our holiday time gives many people the opportunity to visit families and friends and share our lives with the people we hold most dear.

On behalf of the Management Committee of the AADAA I would like to wish our Members, their families and friends a joyous festive season.  I also thank each and every one of you for the work that has been done during the past 12 months within the AADAA. I would like to remind those members travelling to please be careful, the AADAA values its members.  Without you our lives would be empty.

Enjoy a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.  I look forward to the new year being another prosperous and vibrant time.

Dave Spain
AADAA President
