GUEST SPEAKER: Sheryl Pearce gave a very interesting talk at our meeting on Monday about a charity she is involved with “Days for Girls”. Without going into too much detail it is worth going on the website Days for Girls to read what this charity does for women and girls in underprivileged countries around the world.
We as the committee unanimously agreed to support this worthwhile charity and have made a donation on behalf of the Ladies Midweek Tennis.

If any of you out there would like to help this charity either by donation of material or time Sheryl’s chapter of this charity meets each week at 9.30am Thursday – Coast Community Centre, Empire Bay Drive, Bensville or contact Sheryl on 0410 649 469

RECIPES: We are compiling a new cook book so if you have any favourite recipes could you please email them to our Secretary Kathryn Kelly kathrynkelly024@gmail.com if you don’t have email you may give it to any committee member.

APOLOGY: I must apologise to travellers for putting the incorrect score in last weeks newsletter. I don’t know where on earth I got that score from.

RESULTS:
