Everyone is invited to hear guest speaker Lynda Ord talk about Australia's many amazing animal war heroes at this Sunday's meeting of Narooma Historical Society.
Lynda, always a great raconteur, will also present a project by students at the small Yarrawarrah Public School; it's from interviews they did with Army dog handlers. She will also talk about animals who still serve as support dogs for veterans.
The meeting starts at 2pm, this Sunday in Narooma School of Arts' studios behind the BP and Kinema, followed by afternoon tea.
The Vinnies Centre at Narooma has been so lucky to receive some beautiful opals - set and unset. A sought-after Australian gem, opals are a lovely stone to have, so come in and see if one calls to you. If opals are not your thing, have a look at all the Retro jewellery Vinnies has on display. It's fun, attractive and a great talking point when you wear a retro piece. For all you stamp collectors out there, the album with its early Australian stamps is still awaiting your offer. Re donations - the weather lately has reminded us that winter is on its way. The centre reallyneed men's winter clothing.
The May monthly meeting is on Friday at 1pm. It was held over due to the State Conference at Bega. Come along and hear details about resolutions carried, guest speakers and competition successes. Resolutions passed at State conference allow the executive to approach governments and authorities on concerns of members, covering health, transport, education and more. This is the real strength of CWA, and tea and scones help to fund this area. Narooma handicraft ladies have excelled once again. These talented ladies meet Friday mornings 10am - noon. Country of study is Malaysia and support for medical research is Ovarian Cancer. Meetings open to non-members.
