In case you missed our AGM on April 23, 2014 or just wanted to hear the poem one more time!
There once was a woman, not so young anymore,
Who offered support to the women’s organization she’d wanted to explore
She thought to herself, “What on earth can I offer?”
Being a social worker, she thought I must have some things in the coffer!
She joined the finance committee because her knowledge was lacking
But with gumption she said “Well, I guess Let’s get cracking”!
What came to be was nothing but surprising
When asked in year two would she take on financial advising
With support from others on the committee
She agreed to getting down and dirty with the financial nitty gritty
In year 3 she stepped down from her post
With someone much more appropriate stepping in with financial savvy to boast
Only to have a situation arise where the financial guru must leave
Which found our protagonist back as treasurer, Who could ever conceive?
But when asked you step in and help out where you can
And really truly hope that it doesn’t all “hit the fan”
When they realize that for the second year in a row
You had a social worker in charge of your dough!
Now the title of this poem is finance and fiddles
And you’ve heard about the finance so where are the fiddles?
Well who would have known the fun to be had
when a treasurer and an auditor go a bit mad
stay in your seats for it’s a show not to be missed
for this is a treasurers report with a twist
I welcome up to celebrate my final report
Our Auditor and his brother, who is an incredible sport
To join me with their fiddles and bows
And play you a diddy that you may or may not know
As I do my last jig with my friend Patrick Moore
For this is an auditor I have come to adore.
