Spring is finally here in Melbourne! Albeit, I have just returned
from a visit to the US where I was able to soak up the last days of
summer sun and bask in the Midwest humidity for the past month! How
As we approach the end of the year we have a number of important events
on the AWA Calendar - including our largest fundraiser of the year, The
Halloween Extravaganza, which will be held from 2 - 5pm on Sunday 26
October at Elsternwick Cricket Ground. There is still time to be
involved in the planning for the event and to buy your tickets
online! Early Bird tickets are available until 26 September - get
in early and save!!
Our Thanksgiving event has also been scheduled and will be from 12 - 3pm
on Sunday 30 November at Sandy By The Bay. As you probably know,
this is one of the best AWA events of the year - combining great friends
and great food as we celebrate one of America's best holidays! I
hope all of you join us for this joyous event!
Along with the end of the calendar year also comes a changeover in the
AWA Board. I have served as President of the AWA for the past 2
½ years and am stepping down at the end of this year. I have
truly enjoyed being part of the leadership of the AWA and am so proud to
be part of such a great organisation! I will be sad to leave the
role of President, but excited to see the future of AWA develop even
further under a new set of leaders. Elections for the new Board
will be held at our General Meeting on October 15 (which will be at
6.30pm at the RCH).
The Nomination Committee is currently seeking Board members for the 2015
Board year and, in particular, we are still looking for visionary leaders
to fill the following roles: Secretary, Social Director and
Activities Director. If you are interested in any of these roles,
please contact me firstname.lastname@example.org I
would be thrilled to speak to you about any or all of these positions.
Enjoy this Spring weather and I hope to see you at an AWA Event soon!
