November Newsletter 2020

Hi Everyone!
Here’s wishing you all a very Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays, and Happy New Year
The newsletter tells you most of our current news. We haven’t any plans for December due to the Covid 19 pandemic. Thank Goodness Australia is only having the rare case show up but that’s due to our mask wearing, hand washing and careful attention. Please do not forget it takes a bit of indifference to change that. Keep up the good work.

Plans for re opening have not been made. If you are on the newsletter list please keep checking with the lapidary Facebook or here to see if the executive committee has decided it is safe to re open. Now that the vaccine has been released to some it will not be long.
Take time to read the newsletter, Judy has put in a great deal of effort to make the newsletter very enjoyable.

Hope you have a very Merry Christmas, stay home and stay safe/
Best Wishes, Kathy
