TRIBUTE TO LOIS RYAN of BATEMANS BAY QUOTA CLUB Our friend Lois Ryan joined Quota in Batemans Bay soon after moving here in 1983 from Cowra. She had leaned her meeting skills in Cowra as a member of Toastmistresses. During her 29 years as a member of Batemans Bay Quota Club she held many positions both in our club and in the district. She was President for two years in 1986-1988. Our club hosted Conference on 1988 and Lois was the Chairman of the Committee. Lois had a great interest in By-laws and Rules which led to her being on the District Committee a couple of times. In later years she visited many clubs around Australia as she and Bruce and then Ken travelled by caravan. Many times Batemans Bay club was asked to perform at Conference and you can be sure Lois had either written the script or had a part in the performance. The highlight had to be “Snow White” which was performed at Ulladulla Conference many years ago. This was closely followed by “Favourite Things” at Camden Conference just a few years ago. Lois made many friends in the 35th District and in Batemans Bay where for many years she ran her own hairdressing salon. She was still a valued and active member of our club when she died peacefully on Wednesday 4th April. She will be sadly missed by all who knew her.
