General Meeting and Resource Room

March 18 @ 12:00 pm - 4:00 pm

REMINDER: This months meeting is on Saturday 18 March 2023 and will be held at the usual place, the Uniting Church Hall, 23 William Street, Christies Beach, South Australia.

The Resource Room will be open from 12noon for borrowing books. If you would like to use a computer before the meeting begins it will need to be booked.

Members can attend for free and guests are $3 per person. Please bring a gold coin if you would like afternoon tea (eg. coffee or tea plus biscuit or cake). Also change if you would like to purchase from the trading table (eg. home made jam, books, etc).

The meeting time is 1:15pm and talk is by Valerie Lillington on Charles Dickens. The name ‘Charles Dickens’ was known and loved globally, while he was still a young man. How did that happen to an ill-educated, poverty-stricken lad whose dad twice went to prison for debt? How did he make most of his money? Why didn’t he come to Australia when invited although he sent two of his sons here to live? What were the historical consequences? How did he benefit Australia and grieve Caroline Chisholm? Who, of the great names of the time did he know and who cherished him as a friend? What of his children? How did he personally benefit needy causes? What secret cruelty did he carry later in life and who suffered for it? What is said to have killed him?

We have a Covid-19 plan.
