DEAFBLIND LUNCH AT HORNSBY RSL ON 22ND JUNE 2019

PLEASE NOTE – JUNE DEAFBLIND AWARENESS WEEK IS ONE WEEK EARLY!! 

Even though Deafblind Awareness week is usually held in the last week of June with an outing on the Sunday at beginning and Awareness lunch on the last Saturday, this year we are going to have to have the Lunch on the Saturday at the beginning of the week, and only the one event.

I apologise for this as I will be in Melbourne for my grandson Geordie’s 18th birthday. It is not possible to expect other volunteers to organise the week’s celebrations.  We are not alone in changing the date as Victoria are having just one Awareness day on 19th June, and we know of no other celebrations. Throughout the world these are now being confined to Helen Keller’s birthdate, 27th June, not the whole week.

Venue: Hornsby RSL

Cost: $30 for lunch and coffee

Time: 11.30am

It is going to be even more important, this month, to advise DBA(NSW) if you are coming so we can book venue, organise bus and volunteers.  It would also be great if volunteers could let me know early too, if they are available.  Please call/text Janne 0432 570 210 or janneb@iinet.net.au
