Two 20 Year Anniversaries this year

Of course, very year is important. However we have two very important Anniversaries in 2015.
The first is our very first meeting.
The second is our Charter date as Club 5769.

April 12 1995 to Apr 15 2015

Firebug didn’t help me.  It seemed to say there was no padding around the pic.  But there obviously is when I use Add Media.

In this first version I used Add Media but didn’t include a Caption.  I added the caption description manually.  Note the space between pic and text.

Some of our 1995 members came to our April 2015 celebration

In this next version I used the Caption option with a short Caption.  It seems to have a Center alignment but it didn’t center it.  There is a line space between pic and text.  As well the caption text is smaller, which is probably the default.

Now a different version, constructing the entry by using the file name, but not Add Media.  This gives the result I want.

Some of our 1995 members came to our April 2015 celebration

We held our first meeting in the CY O’Connor Centre on Victoria Quay on Wednesday evening, April 12, 1995.

We held our 1000th meeting at the Fremantle Bowling Club on Wednesday evening, April 15, 2015

So that was our first 20 Year Anniversary

It took us seven months to build up our membership to the magic 20, required for Charter as a Toastmaster Club. We sent the application – and the money of course – to World Headquarters in mid November. The Charter was granted on November 27, 2015.
