It is great when somebody has a fabulous day.

 Our Breast Cancer fund raising day was held on 12th September.  This year Aileen Dundon and Carole Howlett worked with Dawn Schimleck to prepare for the day.  We all dressed in pink with wigs, hats and two-two  plus lots of other interesting outfits.   We all had  loads of  fun.  Carole Howlett won the prize for the best pink outfit.  We welcomed back Dawn Schimleck, Jeanette Richardson, Kerrie Hughes, Di Garth and Denise Clarke.  We raised $503.85 which will be very much appreciated by the Breast Cancer Foundation.  Many thanks to the men who donated money and to all the people who donated prizes.  Thank you Aileen and Carole for a very successful day.  See photo below.

 We are preparing for the ladies Club Championships starting the 3rd October and running for 3 weeks.  We wish everybody all the best.
