December Newsletter 2016

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
Wow, December already! Things are going by so fast but really slow for myself. I hate to keep telling you all how bad I feel since I have had all the back and knee surgeries.  I am on the home straight. That means I am almost there, almost healed.  So Santa, if your out there, I’ve been a good girl and I hope my gift is walking well.

Best Wishes for all of you, keep safe and  enjoy the holiday season.

Everything is in the newsletter. Only changes at this time are that in March our Open Day has been changed from March 11 to March 25, 2016

One of our strongest members Bob Pullan passed away last Thursday from a fall that broke his hip and it was discovered he had severe cancer thoughout his body.  He will be laid to rest at Forest Lawn Leppington, NSW near his wife Miriam. He is survived by his son John. Bob, Miriam, and John were all active lapidary member thoughout their lives. Bob especially taught our crew faceting and was the most patient, kindest member our club may ever have. He was in his late 80′s. Please inquire at the club where to send flowers or donations. Bob’s son John has not let me know if he has had any preferences. I believe in live plants for the club or donations to your preferred charity but I sadly apologize at the time I am writing this. I do not know.
