Dieter reported the death of Doreen Gale at 93 years of age in June. Doreen was a keen member of the Skål Club of Portsmouth and also served as President. She managed one of Thomas Cook Travel Agencies in Havant during the 1970’s and later had her own Travel Shop on Hayling Island.
secretary Diane Toner reports that they have been doing lots of successful recruiting and the Club is again thriving. They have around 40 members with lots of young members – mainly female. They are very excited about their entry for the Sustainable Tourism Awards. This is the new Visitor Centre at Giant´s Causeway. So fingers crossed from all of us please! There are five members of N.I going on the Skål Congress and they are hoping to organise a little “Titanic” excursion to the Maritime Museum and Fairview cemetery when the ship calls into Halifax during the trip. A “something civic” presentation from the Belfast Lord Mayor to his appropriate opposite number and a gift from the Belfast Titanic Belfast visitor attraction to the Maritime Museum.
