Sad news, two of our most important elders Kath Oshaunassey’s son John and Helen Standing

Members of our club and clubs in the region will remember Kathleen O’shaunassy . Her husband Laurie, passed a short few years ago. Kath was survived by several of her children and grandchildren. Her son John, 57 passed at her home suddenly of a unknown heart condition. We are very sad about this and wish to send our condolences to friends and family. Her phone service has been extremely unreliable and so if you wish to reach her it may be best to contact the club and your messages will be sent on to Kathleen. I am sure she will be grateful for your good wishes.

Our other bad news is that another strong member Helen Standing, 78 has passed due to complications from a long standing battle with diabetes. Her husband Ray have been strong members and very active when their health was better. Ray passed away very many years ago now. Helen has, in the last couple of years, been active at meetings and given us guidance. She was a very kind and thoughtful member. She is survived by two daughters from her marriage with Ray and a daughter from a previous marriage. I am sorry I do not know if I can pass on any more information in respect to the family. I am sure they would love to hear from you. If the family or close friends read this we send our condolences.
The funeral will be at the
Forest Lawn Memorial Park North Chapel at 12 noon. (9606 5822)
Friday , 26, 2017

You can also leave a message on the phone at Lapidary. 9618 3206 We will be able to see the message on Wednesday but no latter.

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

G-day everyone. Below is the newsletter. I hope everyone is well. Suzy and myself are battling with major surgeries. Best Wishes Suzy!

* we did not have a general meeting for the beginning of November. We will need to see you for Decembers meeting if you can of course. For those who do not remember, General Meetings are held the first Saturday of the month unless it lies on a holiday or we have advised you ahead of time. It is the time when you can say what you want to say and better yet help with anything to do with the club. It starts at 9:30 am on the dot!

Christmas Dinner and our 50th anniversary will be celebrated At The Grange  on the 26th of November at 6pm. We would love to see you there- all old and new members are welcome. Please contact the club for info. $35 pp.  It would be wonderful to see you there. Please contact others that you think may wish to attend!
