Melanie Miller has been volunteering regularly at the Centre for the last two years while her husband, Gary, has been attached to the US Embassy. In that time she has helped with a myriad of tasks and her contribution to the running of the club has been noteworthy. Sadly for us, it is now time for them to return home. We will be having a special morning tea at the Centre to farewell Melanie on Tuesday 3 October at 11.00 am. If you would like to come and join us please let Pat know for catering purposes.


The date for this event is 12 October. We will be serving roast lamb and vegetables followed by raspberry and chocolate mousse.

Lunch is $10, but free for those whose birthday is in October.

RSVP by 6 October on 6248 9509.


The Club’s AGM will be held on Tuesday 17 October at 11.45 am. A two course lunch will be available for those attending for just $5.

Nominations are called for office bearers and members of the Board of Management. Nominations must be lodged with the Board Secretary, Pam Whitely, no later than 11.45 am on Monday 16 October. Nomination forms can be obtained from Pat or downloaded from the September newsletter.

The Constitution Subcommittee of the Board of Management is working on changes to the 2012 version of the Constitution to bring it up to date. The changes will be discussed at the AGM. The revised version should be available on our website  by mid-September for club members to consider.



It’s that time of the year again!! Time to clear out the cupboards, strike the cuttings, clear the bookshelves of all the books you have read, check the recipe books for your favourite cakes and slices and note the date in your diaries so that we can again have a wonderful Christmas fete.This year it will be held on Saturday, November 18 and will feature all the usual stalls. PLEASE DO NOT DONATE ELECTRICAL GOODS. IT IS ILLEGAL FOR US TO SELL THEM.

Remember the old saying – one man’s trash is another man’s treasure – and bring along the things you no longer use and donate them to a good cause. We will soon be calling for volunteers, so think about it now and see if you can give us some time. We don’t just need help on the day, your assistance in the days beforehand would be greatly appreciated.
