Lunch

From Ruth Green Vice President  

Yesterday I was fortunate to enjoy lunch with about 30 members of The 3 Sisters Social Group. People came from as far as Toronto, Sydney and Cronulla to the Wispers Bistro at Wentworth Falls Bowling Club to eat a tasty lunch and enjoy some interesting social conversation. 

I had a happy afternoon thanks to these charming people.

Bathurst PFLAG and Pink Mountains Picnic

From Ruth Green Vice President  

Yesterday my husband Ron and I visited our friends at Bathurst PFLAG. 

We enjoyed a yummy lunch at The George Hotel in Bathurst and interesting chats with our Bathurst PFLAG reps Bernadette and Tony. Bathurst PFLAG people also attended and our time with them was fantastic. 

On our way to Bathurst we called into the Pink Mountains Picnic underway at beautiful Blackheath Park and pool.  A happy day was had by all in the wonderful Blue Mountains summer weather. It is hoped this will become an annual event. I hope so as it was a real success and a lovely way to spend Saturday in the Blue Mountains with family and friends.
