Dear Old Dovorian,
I thought I would take this opportunity to write to you all, particularly after the announcement by the Prime Minster on Tuesday evening, we as a Club have not seen such challenging and worrying times we currently find ourselves in for many decades, in fact I believe not since the last war.
I am reminded that our Club has been forged by working together as one, concentrating our efforts with a focus on a common goal.
The Government is advising us to change our normal routines and regular patterns of life for the greater good of our families and the communities we live in, particularly to protect the most vulnerable within them, which must be a priority for us, even more so in the light of the recent daily updates given by the Prime Minster.
Many of us will need to find new ways of staying in touch with each other and making sure that our loved ones and old school friends are safe and well. I know that every one of us is up to this challenge, and we will get through this together.
Those of you who have your own networks, could I please ask that we all keep in touch, either via setting up a Facebook group between yourselves for example, or the occasional email, text, or phone call. Let me assure you, this will make a difference. I know that many of you are already doing this and I thank you for that.
The secretaries of the OD Golf Society and Old Dovorian Lodge are already in contact with their members, ensuring contact with their members during these uncertain times.
We as a Club will keep you updated on any changes to the Club’s upcoming events that are planned for the summer as a result of the current pandemic, in due course.
If you know of any OD’s who might not have received this email, could I ask you to forward this to them and ensure that they register their contact details at the following link, https://mailchi.mp/27563473fc51/subscribe to ensure that they receive future Club notifications and emails.
You can be assured that I as your President stand ready to play my part.
Please keep safe and look out for each other.
All the best,
Robert McAlpin (Martin’s 71 – 76)
Old Dovorian Club President
