TUESDAY, OCTOBER 30, 2018, saw our 24th Birthday well celebrated with a spectacular cake and a marvellous range of arts, crafts, handiworks, produced by members. 

October 31 2017 was our 23rd BIRTHDAY MEETING, when we celebrated with cake and special entertainment by CRAIG McNULTY - "Magic Craig" - (whose fans include luminaries from the world of entertainment, including Amanda Keller, Sophie Lee and Vince Sorrenti).  His prestidigitation and banter kept us laughing and baffled.

President Brian Buhler and Thelma Fitzgerald, whose husband John was our first President 1994-5, cut the cake and blew out the candles, flanked by all the Past Presidents in attendance.

With President Brian, were Past Presidents Paul Fisher, Bob Jackson, Sheila Jackson; (Thelma Fitzgerald, widow of first President John);  Vera Barnes, Margaret Reiher, Mike Snelling, Phyllis Berger, Rob Petersen, Michael Wells.  Absent:  Charles Smith.

 Magic Craig and our Josie, one of his lovely assistants on the day.

Usually, after the opening business component (sometimes funny business??) of monthly meetings is completed, everyone looks forward to a brief talk by a member about their history or interests or experiences; then comes morning tea, followed by a guest speaker.
