President Annette Lynch welcomed the mayor Bill West, councillor Ruth Fagan, youth ambassador Jemma Pokoney and council project officer Linda Barron.
A new member, Dorothy Dodd, was also included.
Mayor Bill West was most appreciative of the continued support given by the club to the festival prior to introducing Mrs Jay Moore, the guest speaker and her two children.
Jay’s parents came to Australia from Korea and it is here that she received most of her education, only recently settling in Cowra with her husband.
She choose four main topics for her talk on Korea; language, food, work, culture and religious interaction. This was enhanced by a powerpoint presentation and an amusing quiz.
Rowena Casey thanked our guest for her address and made a presentation in appreciation.
Councillor Ruth Fagan spoke on the youth ambassador program and introduced Jemma Pokoney, representing Cowra Dance Factory. Jemma has chosen the local hospital as her charity and told us of her many fundraising efforts, her love of dancing and her passion and determination to make a difference and succeed. We were most impressed by her maturity and enthusiasm and this was acknowledged by Murial Yell on behalf of the club.
Members were reminded that the next meeting will not be until Friday, April 24, when we will be commemorating Anzac Day with historian Graham Apthorpe as speaker.
