Acknowledgments and Thanks

This Project could not have been completed, without the valued assistance and efforts of many people. I must acknowledge and thank the following people in particular and apologise to anyone who may have provided assistance in any way, who I may have omitted from this document, by way of my Loss of Memory or, a Seniors Moment or who have come along at a later date.

First and foremost, I must acknowledge the extreme patience of my loving Wife, Maurveen, who suffered long periods of Loneliness during the course of this Project, for which I sincerely Love and Thank her dearly. Tasks such as these, are never easy, if you do not have the Support of a Good Woman, helping in the background.

I acknowledge the great efforts of our Late Presidents, Mr Alan Eldridge, and Mr Ron Williamson, for their years of Service to the Association. My thanks also go to our Current President Mr Robert Semple, Secretary Mr Reg Lawrence, the Committee Members and all Members of ROTA Inc.
