Grain, Goats and Girls

"Grain, Goats and Girls" was the intriguing title of the address given by Peter Firth at our meeting on Monday. Peter's address covered agriculture in both the Ord River in W.A. and in Thailand. Peter is now involved in a goat farming partnership in Thailand, and we were given an interesting insight into this activity by him. The only disappointing note was the relatively low attendance number. In fairness to the good speakers that Gill has arranged for us, it would be appreciated if all members made an effort to attend our meetings, unless out of town.

At this meeting we also said our final farewell to our very popular Youth Exchange student, Chiara Bernardi, who leaves us to return to Italy this coming Friday. Chiara has been a very willing participant in the Club's activities, including manning the reception desk on Monday's meeting, and we will miss her bubbly personality. We wish you all the best, Chiara, and look forward to your return some day.

I would like to remind members that the performance of Circus Quirkus, our major fund-raiser, is on at the Q Centre, Queanbeyan, this Sunday. There are three sessions - 11am, 2pm and 5pm. It would be good to have a representation of club members at each session, and you will really enjoy the show.

Finally, thanks to all members who have volunteered to assist with the Gnomes project of Canberra East during Floriade. It has been a heartening initial response, but still more are needed to help make this an important fund-raiser for us. Gill McFeat is co-ordinating the roster for us, so please contact her to volunteer.
