As many of you know our Raels Mckibbin is heading south to start a new life with family – we will miss her so as she has been there for us through thick and thin and put in many hours helping out wherever needed. So, we are honouring Raels by holding a morning of bowls on St. Patrick’s Day followed by lunch in the Riverboat Room at 12.30. We would like you to dig out your green outfits or wear at least a touch of green in keeping with the theme of the day.

Also, on the ladies’ board – please get your names down for the District Gala Day at Iluka on Tuesday April 12. Enter by putting your name on the sheet and indicating your lunch choice on the menu provided. Payment for the day is to be made to Secretary Joan. Also, donations for the trading table would be most welcome – craft, plants, books, preserves and also baking (securely wrapped for take-away only).
