This Week’s Cafe Reminder
Notice for Coffee Lovers of Scotland Island

The Island Cafe is on again this Sunday.  The weather is predicted to be good, with a very small chance of showers, so we will be out there.

We are expecting cakes for this week – there was a slight hitch with the double chocolate babka last week, which led to the appearance of some scones.  This week, hopefully the babka will make it.  We have also been promised a banana and date loaf with butterscotch icing.  Yum!

Unfortunately, the swim was not very popular last week – clearly, there are deeply flawed characters on this island.  So this week, how about you bring your children down for a good run round the park?  You can be sipping your coffee, while they tire themselves out, ready for a good sleep.  There’s often a good sprinkling of young un’s, plenty of playmates.

For those of you without small children, separate tables will be available, with ear plugs.

Everyone (children, artists and non-artists) can submit photos of past and present that explore the nature of our place and community.
 The format will be 10cm x 15cm. Submit up to 5 images each. The best 100 will be exhibited later in the Waterfront Café.

They can either be for sale @$5 or NFS. proceeds to go to the Kindy.

It can be a photograph or artwork of any aspect of living off shore. It could be historical or contemporary. Its up to you to interpret.  The postcard mounts can be purchased for $1 at the post office soon.

Mount the image for presentation on card write a little something on the back and return them to a specially marked box at the Post Office/Cafe and PMC Hill Real Estate.
