Another reasonable meeting attendance with apologies from Peter Carver, John Rosee, the Bevans, and Ross Lidbury. Our numbers supplemented by visitors Maggie and Harma.
Ossi gave us an update on his past two weeks activities and events ( The president failing to offer him time to present last week) Highlights  included spending Easter with John Jowett, an Indian Meal with host parents Janette and Dave, winning the Cross Country Run at St Phillips , and making a return weekend trip to Dubbo with Steve and Janette Jackson
This week we had a successful BBQ at Bunnings, donating proceeds to The Isabella Ellis Go Fund Me , project . With proceeds from the raffle I believe we  will add to the donation amount we have made to support Matt and his family

Ossi's Adventures 
Ossi Played soccer on Saturday and visited Maitland Steamfest on Sunday where he went on three steam train excursions. He is pictured with a Stanley Steamer an early steam powered automobile from the early 20th Century which was part of the static displays at Steamfest. He is now on school holidays with only the rest of this week to go and he leaves on the Capricorn Ramble which will take him around a great deal of Australia over a 3 week period.
