TEN thousand dollars to review the CEO’s performance (Voice, July 25, 2015). Is this what John Carey means by the new era of “prudent financial management”?

Men all heart
ON Friday July 24, Forsyth Gardens Hall in Menora was invaded by the smells of barbecued sausages and grilled onions and the chatter of local people who had come to have fun at a sundowner sausage sizzle and quiz organised by the Menora Men’s Group to raise funds for the Heart Foundation.
The event was successful in raising $700 for the Heart Foundation and in entertaining the 37 people who attended and the organisers. Everyone had a lot of fun. The Menora Men’s Group is a loose group of men from the retirement villages in the Plantation Street and Freedman Road area who formed to provide “men’s talk” for them. When the idea of a quiz was suggested the members accepted involvement as a suitable project. Those members threw themselves into the project with much enthusiasm and although not all the tables were taken, the event was a remarkable success both in enjoyment and in fund raising. Some members are already talking of making it an annual event. In addition, local shops, firms and people were generous in donating very good items for prizes and for use in the event. This generosity is very much appreciated, both by the group and the heart foundation.
