The Society A.G.M. for 2021 was held on Monday 22nd March. Given the current pandemic, the meeting was held virtually, and great credit must go to all involved for ensuring that the meeting could take place at all, but especially to have the meeting pass off with nothing more than a couple of minor technical hiccups.
Of course, the Society's activities have been completely derailed since the covid-enforced postponement of our production of The Addams Family in March of last year. Given that the coming months are also so uncertain in terms of social and entertainment activities, planning for any event into the future is almost impossible. Both of these factors limited the functionality of the A.G.M. to the bare essentials of Society business. But the meeting was well attended, with everyone involved feeling positive about having a "normal" event to attend, even if the virtual attendance made it anything but normal.
