After a week of persistant light rain, the skies opened and gave the Jervis Bay a heavy drenching, on the eve of Bay and Basin’s Garden Party. The venue had to be changed from Mary O’Conner’s beautiful manicured garden to the Holy Spirit Church Hall at Vincentia.
A disappointment for all. However the Bay and Basin branch members were able to show off their new hall, which had only been completed the day before with the installation of a double sink, stove and dishwasher.
Forty people attended, comprising of members, friends, supporters, friends from St Vincent de Paul plus our friends from Nowra CWL.
Food was plentiful and naturally we had a raffle; 3 baskets of beautiful ‘goodies’, lucky door prizes, trading table and fingernail painting was also available for a very small fee of $2.
Thanks to our members for their hard work and generosity. A big thankyou to our friends for attending and making this event so successful.
