Quota International of Lower Clarence

Members enjoyed the first meeting of 2016 with guests and a guest speaker. Vice president Lynne welcomed Barb and Lin, both of whom are interested in the work of Quota. After business was completed, Carrie Fairweather a mental health nurse and educator, spoke about mental health and mental illness, a talk all found interesting and informative. Carrie will be back at our May meeting to talk about dementia. Don’t forget about Quota’s first community service for 2016- a HEARING EXPO to be held at Yamba Bowling Club on Saturday, February 13 from 10am. Supported by Celtic Coastal Hearing Services, the Expo will bring professionals together to give the public a chance to ask questions, look at new technology for the deaf and hard of hearing, or to have a free hearing check. Hearing is important to all and to the happiness of the whole family. While many people believe their hearing is “OK”, many could benefit from help. Come along and find out just what is available to assist you if you are having hearing problems. You may even find yourself winning a prize. For more information contact Jill Brown on 6646 9660. Quota meets at Yamba Bowling Club Boardroom at 5:30 on 2nd Tuesday of each month. After the meeting we enjoy dinner in the Norfolk Bistro.
