We hold our monthly meetings at QEII Family Centre at Curtin. After the meeting, we often have a guest speaker. Our last speaker was our National President, Coral, who gave an interesting and informative talk about events at the Hawaii meeting and an update on the Bali Conference in 2010, which is our current main interest. Judith Ann suggested we make a club banner for this and she and Joon gave us an idea of what it would be like. We expect busy Sunday afternoons completing the project.

We participated in the AGM teleconference. We enjoyed a picnic in January in Hilda's beautiful garden.

We supply baby clothes to unmarried mothers in Canberra, and have supported victims of the North Queensland floods. We have given donations to charities such as Marymead, The Alola Foundation and QEII Family Centre. Our main fundraiser is a Charity Stall in September at the Fyshwick Markets.

We had an invitation to a Winter dinner at Manning Clark House. We enjoy lunches at restaurants or member's homes or Embassies.
