Women In The Forces

Monday 25th November we had the amazing Colleen Woolley as our guest speaker

An ex police officer Colleen has followed her passion and written a book - Arresting Women - about women in the police force in Australia throughout their history

Fascinating tales of strong women who followed their dreams and changed the system

It was also novel November with a book table laden with some great authors and books up for grabs ready for their new owners.

We raised $116!!

 

 

      

Oh What A Night!

At our October dinner  members were asked to bring something along for our “Make Bake or Grow” auction. 

Items included delicious cakes and slices, a surprising Halloween Green Marmalade, plants and some beautiful handmade blankets and hats. 

Some bidding wars broke out and we had a lot of fun.  We raised $473.50 for the six Learning for Life students we sponsor through The Smith Family. 

This will definitely be on the calendar again for next year!
