 Term 2 : A word from the Chair and Newsletter launched
 30 March 2021
Welcome to the first emailed newsletter from Westcoast. I can hardly believe that we are moving into Term 2 and that things are (almost) back to normal. The Planning Committee has been extremely busy organising activities for the term ahead. If you would like to help out with planning future activities, please talk to our Administrator, Melissa Frey.
 
The Term 2 programme is ready and a link to the download the newsletter will be sent out today. Congratulations to everyone who has worked so hard to put the programme together and to all those who contributed to the proofreading and editing stages of the production process. What a terrific team!
 
Enrolment Day will be on Tuesday 20th April, with the first scheduled event being Croquet at Nedlands. All the other favourites are also back: Walking Groups, Mah Jong, Pony Canasta, Scrabble, Westcoast Gardeners, a Cooking Demonstration, Book Club, Prose & Poetry, Knit for a Cause and Mini Golf. Sessions on how to manage your smartphone will also continue. The ever-popular Zumba Gold has moved to an afternoon timeslot to suit more people.

This term we have a great line up of speakers, starting with Dr Sven Ouzman, who will be speaking on new information about the Aboriginal rock art of the Kimberley. Cyril Ayris, Chris Van Tuinen, John Jens, Richard Offen and Dr Kenny Travouillon will also present interesting and insightful talks this term. Outings include an afternoon at Ascot races, a tour of the WA Museum Boola Bardip, a visit to the SAS Historical Foundation and bus trips to ‘Romancing the Stone and Garden’ and the Gravity Discovery Centre in Gingin. We have secured tickets to the WA Ballet for Giselle, the WAAPA productions of Crazy for You and Piano Postcards, the WASO Morning Symphony, Jazz@Freo and The Magic Flute at Luna on SX. Some different and unusual events have also been scheduled, such as Kayaking, Sequence Dancing and Ballet at the Barre. Westcoast will once again host an Australia’s Biggest Morning Tea, a fundraiser for the Cancer Council, and we have some fabulous fine dining restaurants booked for lunches and dinners, including Chez Pierre, Prego Restaurant and The Reveley. Yum!

We live in an ever-changing world and that includes what is happening at Westcoast. If and when there are changes, you will be the first to know.

Best wishes
Anne McCrudden
Chairman
Westcoast Community Centre.
