Vale Emer Noone

It is with great sadness that I reflect on the passing of my friend and long standing bridge partner Emer Noone.

Emer passed away peacefully on 14th November with her family by her side. She had been bravely fighting cancer for the past 6 months and now has found her peaceful rest.

Vale Coral

We're sorry to report that Coral Dixon has passed away.

The following has come from her son, Brad.  "My mother Coral passed away at her residence on Thursday 21st October 2022. Bridge played a large part in the later stages of her life and she made many cherished friends along the way. Thanks to the club and those that knew her for your support."  May she rest in peace.

Table Chits and Credit Card Slips

Just a gentle reminder from the Assistant Treasurer about credit card payments at Henley. If you pay your $40 membership fee on the Tap & Go, you must turn in your credit card slip with your table chit, writing your name on the FRONT so I know who has paid. If you pay and take your receipt home with you, I have $40 in the bank and I have no idea whose it is and I will come chasing you for payment at some later date!

When filling out the table chit, please remember to put the date and your table number on the chit. There is a column marked 'Amount Paid'. It's hard to believe I have to say this, but can you please enter the amount you have paid, not cc or a tick. And on all credit card slips, please put your name on the FRONT. It isn't necessary to include your ABF number. And I particularly don't like ONLY your ABF number for identification. This process is not computerised - there's a human at the end of the line. Thank you. Linda Allen
