Lest We Forget

Our member Seybert Hayward who passed away in September

Welcome to our new members; Terry Donnelly, Ray Edwards, Barrie Morgan, Barry Wanstal,

Current membership of North Beach stands at over 312 plus 17 Affiliate members. The monthly meetings are attracting an average of 115 attendees. Taking into the account the many members who are travelling around the countryside and of course still working and serving, this is a great result. Members are charged $10 per meeting, which includes the cost of two rounds of drinks during the meeting and another $5 (optional) for a dinner. As a mark of respect for their service, WW2 and Korean War Veterans do not pay.

Groups


Walkers, meet Wednesday and Friday, Hillarys Boat Harbour, 0900
About 20-25 members meet regularly for a stroll along the coast followed by coffee and a chat.
We also have kayakers who meet up at 0800 for a paddle and pick up debris from the Boat Harbour, before joining the walkers at coffee. The newly established cycling group is also gaining in numbers.
