from the gardeners.

_Community Variety Concert: _We are considering putting on a concert of some
sort sometime over the next few months. The idea is that this would provide
an opportunity for the Rockers of Ages Choir to perform as well as some
other local acts. If you are interesting in helping with this project
(performing even), please let us know. It’s just an idea at present but from
ideas come action.

_Sumner Bays Union Trust _provides activities and services that focus on

welcome everyone in the spirit of inclusiveness. It is a registered

support, please let us know.
