President Cheryl's Message
Hi everyone
Great presentation by Liz Shea last week on genealogy. Always interesting to hear a different angle. Skeletons in the cupboard have a lot to answer for!
This coming week is a dinner and chat. We will be taking the opportunity to think about social activities. I’m sure you’ve all heard the saying “the family that plays together stays together”. By the time we finish dining, I would like to think we have nailed down at least 3 events to run with.
Yours aye

Kindling Chopping Sat. 15th April.
You are invited to come to a kindling woodworking bee on Saturday 15th April, starting at 9 am and finishing at 12 noon.  The location is a shed (the sign above the sliding door is 'STORE 2) on LHS of Hayes St (when coming from the wharf end).
We have boxes of wood to cut into kindling. We need people with tomahawks and some people to stack boxes with the cut kindling.
If you are able to help please email me by clicking here...  so that we can organise numbers and morning tea.
As always a good morning tea will be provided.

Editors Humour
Acupuncture is a jab well done. That's the point of it.
