WOMEN OF WOOMELANG
Group meeting 12/10/18

Thank you to all who attended our recent morning tea meeting to discuss ideas for WOW.
Many thoughts were raised and suggestions made, with general consensus being that everyone wanted WOW to continue.
It has been proposed that the meal format change to “Bring a plate to share”, allowing people to bring a plate of sandwiches/biscuits & cheese/fruit/sliced meat/quiche slice/salad items or whatever type of lunchtime nibbles that they can put together.
WOW will follow on immediately from Tai Chi and meditation session, commencing with a gentle walk or some more vigorous laps for those wanting to stride out.
Shared lunch will then follow, along with a glass of wine, water, tea or coffee and a brief presentation or item of interest from our Registered Nurse.
To vary the walks and add interest, some bus trips to Lake Lascelles, Tchum, and other local lakes will be organized to leave after Tai Chi and meditation with the same format of a shared lunch at the destination followed by a walk for those able.
It is hoped that these changes might spark a renewed interest in WOW and we invite any new members to come along and enjoy the companionship of other ladies within the community.
NEXT WOW @ WBNC 19/10/18 COMMENCING WITH TAI CHI @ 11.30
ALL WELCOME!
