The Memorial Fund

At the 1975 Branch AGM it was agreed that a fund, to be called The Memorial Fund be set up for the primary purpose of bringing an examiner from the RSCDS Headquarters at regular intervals and that Regions be encouraged to give donations to this fund in the memory of Mildred Clancey and other dancers of the Scottish Country Dancing movement in New Zealand so that their work may be remembered and carried on.

Should the fund not be needed for this primary purpose any Annual General Meeting may, by a simple majority, approve the use of the fund for other purposes not inconsistent with the general desire to maintain the high standard of dancing in New Zealand.

Requests for an entry to be included in the Memorial Book should be accompanied by a donation to the Memorial Fund.
