UPDATE FROM MAY 2019 MEETING

Today's meeting was most informative. A big thank you to Peter and Barbara for arranging our guest speaker Dean, Senior Station Officer from NSW Fire and Rescue. His presentation was like having a very enjoyable fire safety refresher course. Many thanks to Dean, and all our members who attended.
stay strong, Viv.

 

UPDATE FROM APRIL 2019 MEETING

This months guest was Natasha, dance instructor from "Dance for Parkinson's". We were treated to some great golden oldie tunes, while learning that exercise and dancing are great fun, as well as therapeutic. Join in the fun weekly at our dance classes in Penrith Senior Citizens Club, or monthly at Wentworth Falls.

 

UPDATE FROM MARCH 2019 MEETING

Peter Longhurst, from Parkinson's NSW was our guest speaker this month.  Peter has a long and colourful career path, that has eventually landed him at PNSW HQ, where he looks after bequests, and gives advice on "getting your affairs in order" by the signing of Wills, Power of Attorney, and Guardianship.  His presentation had just the right mix of cheeky humour and practical information, and our members enjoyed it and have repeatedly told me how impressed they were with his easy and friendly manner.  Thanks again Peter.

 

UPDATE FROM FEBRUARY 2019 MEETING

Our guest this meeting was Melinda from Fair Trading NSW.  She gave us a presentation about "SCAMS" - rampant and frighteningly easy to be fooled by. She outlined how to recognise them, and had hints to handle them. We appreciate your visit to our Group, and thankyou for taking the time to educate us to the minefield of opportunists that are only happy to relieve us of our hard-earned funds.

Thankyou Melinda.

 

UPDATE FROM JANUARY 2019 MEETING

Today's meeting was very informative.  We welcomed Mirelle from PNSW HQ, who enlightened us with the inner workings of HQ. We appreciated the warm and friendly way Mirelle imparted all the latest in research, office procedures that support all the Groups in NSW, and enjoyed the relaxed two-way Q and A at the end of her presentation.

Many thanks Mirelle.
