Things to consider when purchasing a new projector

Club Staff Supporting Members

26 August 2020

Upper Hutt Cossie Club staff recently donated $20 each to provide 100 free meals for the Club’s elderly members. From the Club’s over 70 years membership database 50 members were drawn randomly and were delivered two meals each in late July.
