Branch report – November 2013
The SSPA of WA has been very quiet over the winter months. We only had Jocelyn, Erica and Jo at the Annual General Meeting held on 21 September. Peter Longbottom submitted his interest in becoming Vice Chair-Person (pending his membership renewal) which was accepted by Jo and seconded by Jocelyn. We are also looking at making up a database of medical problems that our short statured children have had. It will include the doctor that they saw for it and any other relevant information that may assist in the future. It was also decided that we have our Christmas Party at the same venue as last year. So Jo emailed our member who organised it last year and we have pencilled in the 8th of December.
Sam Kimberly had a fabulous time at the World Dwarf Games and according to his mum he has plans to compete again in the next WDG in four years’ time. In the meantime he is back in the pool 6 times a week and loving it. His next goal is to make the Nationals over East which will be held next April.
We have had no email or phone enquiries but Erica is in contact with two parents of short statured babies. Our finances are doing well, though we have no income at the moment. We are going to look at ways to increase our funds. Anne Battista has been selling the Dwarfism Awareness Month wrist bands and so far we have sold at least nine and I am sure Anne’s whole commission of bands will go in no time.
The WA members who went to the Tasmania Convention all had a fabulous time and are looking forward to seeing you all again in South Australia next year!
Well that’s it from us for now. We should have more in our next report now that summer is almost here.
