Dear all WOW members
Robbie Hand will be convening the next WOW meeting is to be held at
Carolyn Milani's home 19 Florence terrace , Scotland Island on Saturday 21 June @ 12 45 pm.
Robbie is the French teacher @ St Luke's, Dee Why and her favourite
topic is "vive la france" so come
with appropriate food and attire its easy to dress rouge / blanc / bleu
and she is most knowledgeable as she has lived in France for quiet some
Also Robbie is new to the western foreshores and she lives with her
partner Chris McGrath @ "Trincomalee"
so WOW has been very vital for her to meet the locals and we do embrace
the guys so feel free to invite your partners and we have been
discussing the possible change from Wow to Pow ----- People on Water so
as to include everyone.
Angela Cooney has kindly offered to host WOW 27 September or 18 October in
Elvina Bay, the date to be confirmed closer to the time and she is a
zoologist so her first love is the animals and environment.
So we have two very diverse topics and look forward to your
contribution and it follows on very well from the seed freedom movement
Quality of water and in general our well being.
