This week's meeting (November 22)  is a merge of a social meeting with a service aspect in the form of some hands-on service, to assist the Santa Parade Team with final preparation for Parade Day on November 26.

Working Bee

  • November 22 from 5.30pm.
  • Santa Parade float workshop -  CP Wool Store, 815 North Rd.
  • Special Guest: District Governor (DG) Jan Boustead

We will be supporting the Santa Parade team with the final check over and cleaning of floats  to ensure they are looking their best for parade day.  Additional tasks may include cleaning, painting or other general parade prep so please dress accordingly.

Members of the Satellite Club and NRG have been invited to join us.

There is an informal fish and chip tea following the working bee and DG Jan will give us an update on happenings in the District.

RSVPs are required to assist with catering. $10pp to cover fish & chips and a cold beverage.

If you have members unable to join in the working bee aspect but keen to come and meet DG Jan - we can make this work too.

Post Parade Party in Park - Sausage Sizzle
This year the Club has a new opportunity to co-ordinate a sausage sizzle in Queens Park after the parade as a club fundraiser.
The sausage sizzle stand requires set up, sausage sellers from 2.30pm and few pairs of hands for packup / cleanup.   Please liaise with President Lisa if you can help out on the sausage sizzle stand.
