Next Meeting December 5th
The next session is our end of year celebration. We will have the usual silent auction and also provide some catering. There are some changes due to the COVID restrictions so please read the details in the newsletter.
Due to the restrictions on the numbers in the hall (50) the committee asks that only members attend this year. If your partner is a financial member, they are entitled to attend but otherwise we would like to ensure members can gain entry. This year there will be changes to the food and drink with no buffet style tables allowed. Pizza and canned drinks or water will be offered by nominated volunteers and Bruce will be manning the punch bowl. You will be given your own pencil to use at entry. Some items will be combined to streamline the payment process. Remember to bring your donations of quality saleable items or wine for Michael, which need to be dropped off between 1pm and 1.30pm. Bring plenty of change with you to reduce the need for contact as much as possible.
NOTE: The number restrictions may change. If the hall management update the conditions of use, we will notify you via email.
COVID safety regulations: To comply with the guidelines and for the safety of our members, some changes will be implemented at the meetings. You will need to provide contact details on entry and seating will be arranged to comply with social distancing measures. Dedicated people will be assigned for preparing and distributing the afternoon tea. Please assist us by adhering to the new processes. As required, if you have experienced a fever, cough, sore throat, shortness of breath or travelled overseas in the past month please stay at home.

The Bimer Tree Dig – September 26, 2020
It was a very blustery morning on Saturday 26th September when about 10 members turned out for a dig for natives. Mostly casuarina’s were dug with a few eucalypts thrown in. It was great to have a site so close to civilisation and we have Pierre to thank for that. He bagged the best tree for the day and has been warned it must survive !
Please note that during these times we will need to practice the COVID-19 safety regulations as outlined by the government and in place at the time of each meeting.

Our venue is the Wavell Heights Community Hall located at:
