From the Chairman - Term 4, 2018

Westcoast Community Centre’s first programme of activities was run in Term 4, 1993. To celebrate the milestone of its 25th anniversary in Term 4 2018, Westcoast will hold a members’ long table lunch on Tuesday 4 December.

We would love to have all our members attend the lunch, but the community room is not large enough to accommodate us all. To give everyone an equal opportunity to attend, we have decided to hold a ballot for places among those members who express an interest in attending the lunch. If you wish to attend, please record your interest on the enrolment form and the ballot will be conducted promptly after the closing date for expressions of interest. Members drawn in the ballot must then finalise their enrolment by the date specified, or that place will be reallocated to a member on the waiting list.

As always, the planners have worked hard to put together an interesting and varied programme. Walk with us across the new Matagarup Bridge, visit Penguin Island or a Buddhist temple, have fun with mini-golf – you can enjoy getting out and about with your Westcoast friends in the warmer weather on these and many other events. And there are always plenty of events in the community room, from talks to flower arranging, chair yoga to a relaxed morning tea . . .

Westcoast will again host a free event in WA Seniors Week. The talk by Neville Hills and Tammy Smith on 13 November will be a special free event, but it is still essential to book as the capacity of the community room is limited.

2018 has been another busy year for us all. I thank our many volunteers for their contributions which, together with those of Melissa and Nicky, enable Westcoast to be such a wonderful organisation. As this is the final newsletter for the year, I wish you all a safe and happy Christmas and look forward to seeing you at Westcoast again in 2019.

Connie Chapman, Chairman.
