First Paragraph

1. Our next AGM will be on Friday 24 November at 7.30 pm. It will be held at 58a Westbourne Park Villas, LONDON W2. All members are welcome. **************************************************************************

2. Things afoot 1. The committee is thinking of arranging a three-day tour of Huntly and district in autumn 1990. The event would include lectures on MacDonald and visits to places connected with him and his family. Participants would stay at a local hotel and transport would be by bus. Guest lectures would be included, possibly a memorial service and a celebration dinner – and perhaps the unveiling of a plaque commemorating George and Louisa MacDonald at Drumblade cemetery where the other members of the MacDonald family are buried. 2. The committee is also thinking of publishing Pilgrim’s Progress. This is the play (based on Bunyan) in which George MacDonald played a star role when the family production was taken on tour. Society Members would receive a copy free or perhaps for a modest payment. 3. Gordon District Planning Committee has received a proposal for the siting of a new cottage opposite the gates of Drumblade Cemetery, and the George MacDonald Society committee has decided to object and send a letter to the Planning Committee.
