A Word from Sally
Hope everyone had a wonderful break over January, we are looking forward to another busy year. Our Christmas party was a roaring success, many thanks to the TOMNET team for their BBQ skills and the Minstrels for their entertainment. We raised over $150 in our cent sale, many thanks to all that participated and a big thanks to everyone who donated the items!
Once again we will be hosting International Women’s Day on Wednesday the 8 th of March. The theme this year is “#BeBoldForChange". The World Economic Forum predicts the gender gap won't close entirely until 2186, this is too long to wait. International Women’s Day is an important catalyst and vehicle for driving greater change for women, so come along and support women worldwide at our morning tea. There will be a guest speaker and raffles on the day along with our ubiquitous delicious morning tea! If you would like to find out more about the gender gap please go to this link http://reports.weforum.org/global-gender-gap-report-2016/
Our Tech Savvy program is back again this year but will only be available until the end of March. If you know of someone over 60 (50 if they identify as Indigenous or Torres Strait Islander) who is interested in learning how to use technology we have lessons every Wednesday. If those interested do not have transport we can pick you up and drop you home afterwards in the bus (although this is subject to availability). So don’t let fear or lack of transport put you off learning about Technology, we have very friendly and understanding tutors on hand, so make the most of this service whilst it is still available.
