Meeting Aims and Objectives.
The Fellowship of First Fleeters is non-political, non-sectarian and we do not raise funds. The purpose of the Chapter
is to provide regular meetings and activities for fellowship and development of historical and cultural interests among
Membership is for first fleeters, associates (partners) and friends to meet, share activities and interests, and enjoy good company.
Meetings are held on the fourth Tuesday of every second month comprising formal meetings and outings. The formal meetings (4 pa) have a short business session then a ten minute presentation by a member on his/her ancestry. This is followed by an guest speaker with an historical subject and afternoon tea. Outings (2 pa) are to places of local historic interest or simply social events. Details of the next meeting are shown on the Events page of this website. Members are kept informed of these events at the regular meetings and in the Newsletter. Guests are very welcome.
