2021 Carindale Christmas

On 25 November we held our last meeting for the year themed "A Golden Christmas".  Many of the ladies wore Christmas headbands made by the ladies

in our Talk and Tinsel group.  We shared a lot of fun and laughter, especially when we played "Christmas Celebrity Heads".  (Check our Assistant Treasurer wearing her Ebenezer Scrooge headband.)

A few of our Carindale members got together to raise funds for our Learning for Life students.  The Newnham Hotel, where we meet, invited us to have a stall at their Black Dog Ride fundraising day.
