This was held at The Yellow Piano at Wyoming and all appeared to have an enjoyable time. Thanks go to Ingrid Rode and Elaine Fry for their organisational work and also to Kelvin Fry for his contribution of the attractive table decorations. We had some nice food and the entertainment was great so thanks go to Proprietor Trevor and his staff. President Shirley Rider welcomed everyone and acknowledged the original custodians of the area, the Darkinjung people. Senior Vice President, Elaine Fry, was then invited to speak about the long history of our Society. She is the longest serving member of BWHS, having joined the Society in February 1972, with sons Kelvin and Darryl not far behind,joining in March 1972. Their long service was acknowledged on behalf of the Society by Margaret Pearce, Vice President.
