Marty reaches reaches his target!
Marty and his family would very much like to thank all those people who
supported him in his efforts to raise $3300 to participate in the
Special Olympics National Games in October in Melbourne. He has now
reached his target.
The pizza day, the donation tins, the lunch at the Bayview tennis club
and the dinner at Church Point on 29 August all went towards this goal.
He raised over $2000 last Friday night. The generosity of Mary and Joe
in agreeing to host this night so willingly was very much appreciated.
The Sly Dogs lived up to their reputation of a social conscience and
The fun generated by Tim Byrne in the auction process was great.
He encouraged ridiculous bids - so that the $50 voucher went for $150
to Geoffrey and then he gave it back to Marty! Thanks to those who so
willingly opened their hearts and wallets.
- to Jan Sindel-Hand for
donating one of her lovely marine paintings—TACTICS (Adrian Matthews
got a beautiful bargain),
- to Chuck Bradley for his
art piece (photograph) of the Making of Midnight Oil (which will adorn
Matt Gardner's walls),
- to Stuart Veitch for his day
sail for 8 on Sun Odyssey (bought by Sally),
- to Mary and Joe Romero for
their $100 voucher (Julian and Nathalie) and
- to the Marina restaurant at
the Quays for their $50 voucher (Geoffrey Bullock).
Maria, Mary's daughter, and her husband also donated a voucher which
went as a lucky door prize.
It was a really lovely night and it reinforces the warmth and caring to
be found in this community.
I must also mention Brian, in the Post Office, who came up with the
idea of asking for a donation each time he had to get someone's mail
for them (20-30 times a day). He will now continue this practice for
the Fragile X Association of Australia. So keep forgetting your keys!

NEXT WOW is to be HELD @ Angela Cooney's home Elvina Bay North
Wharf - house on the right as you disembark
has sprung and 3 x months has flown by and Angela who is a zoologist
has very kindly offered her home and her interest zoologly. Living in
the semi wild as we do life is not the same as in the suburbs as we
live at a very close proximity with nature and at times it can drive us
mad but unless we humans learn to live with the animals , the plants
and the elements, we will devour our very planet that sustains us all.
Angela and her colleague are going to demonstrate how to live
with and handle snakes, particularly the python which is
harmless, and we all have our snake stories.
So come with food / wine and curiosity.
