General Manager's Report
Winter has arrived and so has our new chef, Carla Ramos. Carla has had a positive impact on the Club since day one. She brings her Irish flair, along with a real passion for food. Please go to the dining tab to check out her new menu, and next time you are in the Club go to the kitchen and say dia duit (hello).
The Club again has had a strong year with operating profit over $500,000. With the purchase of 495 Mt Alexander Road Moonee Ponds, the future looks very bright.
In 2020 the Moonee Ponds Club will be celebrating 125 years. Author Paul Kennedy is documenting its history to be published in a book celebrating a century and a quarter of the Club. If you have any Moonee Ponds Club stories or memorabilia and would like to be a part of the Club history, contact Paul Kennedy on 0417 537 261.
In other news, three of our senior staff members have left us to move into new professions. I would personally like to thank them all for their hard work, the pleasure they gave to so many customers and the extra they put into the Club. So, Penny, Julia and Tom, thank you, you will be missed by all and good luck with your future employment.
In early August you will receive your membership renewal, and the next issue of Porcellian, until then if you have any ideas small or big please give me a call on 9326 1799.
