Bays group has second attempt to elect committee
The Bays Community Group will hold a Special General Meeting on July 29, after the group's annual meeting on June 24 failed to elect a president, vice-president or secretary.
President Ms Cathy Gleeson resigned at the meeting.
No nominations were received for the positions.
Prevous president Mr Bob Puffett was reported in the group's newsletter saying: "The Bays is not just the Hall.
"It is a collection of some 550 homes, their residents and hopes for a wonderful lifestyle that is healthy, wealthy and wise.
"It is a focal point of the Bays residents.
"It is a collective of community ideas, a public place for residents in times of hardship such as bushfires."
Newsletter editor Ms Brooke Hemphill said: "The Bays Community Group is a conduit through its members and executive to Council, State and Federal Government and provides an inclusive representation to various businesses and organisations.
"The Hall in Woy Woy Bay and the land it stands on is owned by the community group, not the council.
"It is available for resident functions such as weddings, birthdays and social events.
"We urge as many of our residents to attend and nominate for the available positions on July 29 so we can vote on a new committee and continue to foster the sense of community that drew so many of us to this area."
