Some very sad news
Updated: Jun 18, 2019
The ECA Management Committee has been saddened by the recent death of Vernon Patten, husband of our Secretary Roma. Vernon served as Treasurer for 6 years and ensured the association was run on a sound financial basis. Although standing down this year as Treasurer he had intended to continue to serve as Editor, his other hat. As a Committee member, Vernon had a knack of quietly listening to lengthy discussions of problems and drawing them to a close with a clear analysis of the issues and a well reasoned solution. He will be sadly missed and our thoughts are with Roma.
