All committed to Stopping Abuse in Families Everywhere!
After five weeks of driving through the most marvellous areas of autumnal Beechworth, Southern Highlands (Bowral, Moss Vale, Kangaroo Valley) to Bateman's Bay with untouched towns of Mogo, Moruya and Milton, Editor took a swift drive home in time to be locked up! My thanks to Jo for creating five Bulletins. First time Editor has missed creating a Bulletin in five years.
Maybe now we are travelling across the "Ditch", you may happen to be planning a trip to New Zealand. Here is a formal invitation to you and your guest to attend the Centenary Dinner of the Rotary Club of Wellington. Another "once in a lifetime event"!
Editor has not missed creating a Bulletin in 5 years but is taking a FOUR Bulletin break. Please assist Jo with content for next four weeks as Editor and her travel companion (pictured) presents Rotary Lavington (Wodonga), Bateman's Bay, Bega and Wagga Wagga with SAFE Families. My appreciation to Jo.
