Walter Simms (vice-Chair) welcomed everyone to the first meeting of the session, and extended a special welcome to Sylvia, who had heard about the Association at Hanne Stuckert’s Limes talk at Falkirk Library during Big Roman Week. Anne Simms (Secretary) then reported on all the happenings over the summer, including the Airth Highland Games and Big Roman Week, and Christine Gannon reported on the very successful visit by the two German students on work experience in July. The programme for this new session was discussed, and a suggestion that the last meeting of the session should be a canal trip met with universal approval. There are two possibilities for a visit to the Odenwald in 2017, either Schottische Nacht in August or the Gross Umstadt Winzerfest in September, and members are encouraged to express a preference. The meeting concluded with a fund-raising raffle and German style refreshments.
