Newsletter for Offshore Residents of Pittwater, Australia Volume 9, Issue 338 September 2008
Great fun was had by all, the costumes were a hoot and the players performed brilliantly.
: Philip & Trilby Bond
Church Point Ferry Service has launched their new website. Current timetable and fares can be seen at www.churchpointferryservice.com
The hall was decorated in Indian silks, candles on the tables, white table cloths & pink runners, and a rostrum with carpets snaked through the room (design by Ruth Tedder). Indian music gently played as people started to arrive. Poppadums and chutneys were already on the tables, and a seating plan directed our guests to their places. A quick stop at the bar for an Indian beer, and the curry night has begun.
Friends of the kindy had cooked up a storm, with plentiful (and diverse) curries and raita and chutneys, and it was very efficiently served by a team of mothers from the kitchen. While it was served, the Quiz Master's gorgeous assistant (Lizzie Hazelwood) wafted among the tables, distributing the first sheet of the Quiz - the Picture Round - and there was a distinct shuffling of chairs as the teams closed ranks.
The bar out on the deck was a little chilly that night, though it was toasty inside the Hall, with so many people and so much hot food. But the wine and beer were plentiful and popular.
And then the Quiz Master arrived (Jon Hazelwood). Magnificently arrayed in a spangly suit, the Quiz Master is Always Right (though many of the contestants clearly thought this was Not The Case!). Identifying pictures and music, answering questions on general knowledge and local history (exactly how high above sea level is the highest point of the island...?), and making towers from newspaper and tape kept all the contestants busy for the night.
Prizes were given for the winning team (the Mamas and the Poppadums, and not just because Bill Gye was on the team, they really did answer the questions!), best team name (Trivial Hirsute) and the individual round (how many steps in the Centre Point tower?).
The evening made around $2000 for the kindy, which is a goodly sum - but best of all, everyone had a great time!

A FUNdraiser for 3 severely Autistic children
Come One, Come All,
lets play a MASQUERADE Ball
Join us to help create a fantastic fundraising event to support 3 amazing Autistic children, including our local little girl Felicity!
We would love your ideas and skills to make this into a dazzling night to remember!
We need your help with items such as catering, decorations, gathering items to be auctioned, waiting tables on the evening etc and are forming up our committee now.
"Meet the children you are supporting".
All three children are absolute characters and their willingness to persevere is inspiring as they all choose every day to participate with us and their team of loving volunteers to learn and grow.
Over the course of each Son-Rise Program; all three children have mastered toilet training, are developing language, and most importantly learning how to have meaningful relationships and enjoy the people around them.
All three families provide a full-time home based Son-Rise Program for their children; whilst still caring for other young siblings, running a household, working, and carefully keeping the regime of diet and supplementation that is so critical for Autistic children.
