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.

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!
