Where is this year going! As winter finally comes to a close, a cold one it has been. We've had numerous reasons to celebrate and enjoy good food and company. It's been a delightful change to celebrate the soon to-be-arrival of new life and also the short stay of old familiar faces of our interstate and international travellers.
As we draw closer and closer to the silly season, we have many reasons to get those festive wheels spinning. Get that calendar out and start locking in dates for the events and fundraisers ahead.
SAVE THE DATE!
Have you got your 90s costume ready?
Remember our ninth birthday party will be on September 24th at the Varsity Tavern (2 Santa Maria Court). It is 90's theme so please come dressed in your best 90's attire.
As always there will be Food, Photo Booth, Drinks and Music from our old favourite Dan Hannaford.
