Kiama R.P.A. branch are functioning with a small
group of dedicated members, who meet on a monthly basis. Our April

Margaret Dun; John Mennie; Kel and Dawn Schreiber, Patricia Condon,
Mary Douglas, Sue Good, Lindsay Gordon, Keith and Jenny Bennett and
Christine Yeo in attendance. Apologies from Jack and Margaret

style meal was served and proved very popular. I can recommend the
venue to anyone in or visiting the area.

Peters. There we had Gordon and Jan Weaver, Kel and Dawn Schreiber,

Christine and Pat Yeo and Jack and Margaret Gudgeon. The usual
protocols for a meeting were followed before most of us adjourning
to the bistro for a well earned lunch.
