Christmas on the foreshore

Join us for some informal networking and seasonal fun on Sunday December 2 at 5 pm, at the South Perth foreshore.

We’ll meet at the Narrows end of Sir James Mitchell Park, adjacent to the car park that’s at the end of South Perth Esplanade. There are BBQs and toilet facilities and plenty of shade. Bring along your picnic or BBQ food and we will supply snacks, wine, soft drink and games! (A folding chair might also be a good idea.)

RSVP to Tanya Marwood by Saturday Dec 1.

Christmas celebration 2011

Thanks to everyone who came along to our Indian Christmas dinner at the Buddha Bar to celebrate the end of the year for the Society. We had secret santa pressies and if you weren’t happy you could swap with one you liked, Jan organised some fabulous quizzes, and we consumed a delicious banquet under the ever-watchful eye of an enormous Buddha. All to the music of Whitney Houston and Madonna!

We look forward to seeing you all next year. We won’t have a normal networking session in February but we will be having a workshop on Saturday 18 February which we’ll tell you about later. Then it’s our AGM on 6 March where we elect/re-elect the office bearers and hopefully welcome some new hands in the new year.

The committee wishes all our members a very safe, happy and productive Christmas and new year holiday!
