Farewell to a Fabulous RHSV Volunteer

Today we regretfully farewelled a long-term volunteer, former Councillor, and Fellow of the RHSV, Judith Bilszta.   Past President Professor Weston Bate gave an appreciation of the many talents and great contribution of Judith for over 30 years.  Several retired volunteers came to enjoy hearing Judith deservedly praised, as well as the many current volunteers, and past and present Councillors.  We hope we will still see plenty of her at our regular functions and events.
