This year’s break-up was held on Sunday December 14th, at the usual shelter in Ben Bennett Botanical Park. In spite of the overcast drizzly morning some 15 or so hardy souls turned up, and enjoyed the usual good food and friendship. It also gave us a chance to say goodbye, with flowers and a card, to Joline, our wonderful Facebook editor, who has secured a full time position in Mackay, teaching marine science. We are very sorry to see her go, but wish her all the best for the future. This means, though, that we will be looking for a newsletter editor as well as a President at the AGM on February 19th.
