OHA Newsletter March 2015

10th March 2015

WE HAVE MADE IT!!!!   The UTAS/OHA scholarship target of $200,000 has been reached.

Warren Brewer – you are a legend.

Assistant legends –  Maxeme and Roger Tall and Ann Hopkins.

You are all well aware of the support that Maxeme and Roger Tall have given to the scholarship.

More recently Ann negotiated a $7,000 donation from the executors of the estate of her Aunt and Uncle, Phem and Ted Hopkins. Phem (Chandler) attended HHS in 1914 and Ted in 1915.

How about that! Two of our almost original old scholars have contributed, 100 years later, to this marvellous legacy initiated by Warren.

A huge thanks also to the other 314 contributors to the fund.

But!! keep on donating. Make the fund grow. We could increase the scholarship or provide another?

President Rosie advises that scholarship selections have been made for this year and we are just awaiting confirmation of their acceptance by the winners.

Next event on the calendar is the Annual Dinner at the University Club.     Friday 15th May

Same price as last year – $60 per head for a 3 course meal (alternate drop) plus a welcoming drink and priceless company. A feature of the evening will be the presentation of a Life Membership certificate to Max Brown.

We will send out a more detailed acceptance form in a few weeks time.

Next will be the function to mark the Centenary of the Association.

As foreshadowed, just the one event –

“A Lingering Lunch”

To be held In the Assembly Hall at 71 Letitia St.

On Saturday 24th October   –    12 noon until 3.00
