Branch Report – January 2014
I hope you all had a lovely Christmas and have had a great start to the new year. Hard to believe how quickly the new year comes around.
Leading up to the Christmas period, the NSW Branch had a few social events.
Children’s Christmas Picnic and Northern Region Weekend – Saturday 17 November
Over the weekend of 16 – 17 November, we held our annual Children’s Xmas Picnic at Blackbutt Reserve in Newcastle. We had a big turnout and even Santa turned up! Some members stayed on in Newcastle and enjoyed a dinner at Warner’s at the Bay on the Saturday night followed by Ten Pin Bowling. On Sunday Dawn organised a sports day at the sports centre next door to the motel where we played indoor cricket and soccer. A big thanks to Dawn for all her hard efforts in organising this weekend.
Adult’s Christmas Party – Saturday 23 November
The Adult’s Christmas Party was held at Criniti’s in Parramatta. Whilst it was a small turn out, we all enjoyed the copious amounts of delicious Italian food, fine weather and company.
Branch Meeting – Saturday 7 December
Our latest Branch meeting was held at the home of Michael Blair and Emily Sloane in Dee Why, Northern Beaches of Sydney. We discussed some of the coming events and potential fundraisers. We were joined by the Eyles family with their young daughter, Bella from the south of Sydney coming to their first meeting and social. It was great to see them there!
