Social Scene April 2011

Daylight savings is over, and there is a slight chill in the air. I really enjoy autumn weather; it’s a little bit brisk, and it’s still light enough in the morning to get out and about. Easter is over and Mother’s Day is just around the corner, and I feel quite positive as I think about future projects and about the possibility of some travel later in the year.
I think that some of this positivity comes from attending Kochie’s Business Bootcamp this month. Marcia Bourke from Ashlea Road Boutique and I travelled to Sydney for a two day bootcamp that included discussions and presentations from some of the most inspirational people I have ever met. I have attended many seminars and conferences, but this one was the most amazing experience I could imagine possible as a business person.
Another positive experience was Dyana and Peter Brown’s 40th wedding anniversary, held at the beautiful Molines in the Hunter Valley. Grahame and I, along with Rebecca Irvine and Chris Poleszczuk joined some of their special friends and relatives for a wonderful celebration. The scenery was picture perfect, the weather was stunning, great food and wine and excellent company. It was a fabulous day, and we were honoured to be able to share their special day with them.
Jannette Mosely was guest speaker at the April get together of the Manning Valley Business Women’s group held at Rio’s in Taree. Jannette shared her expertise on financial planning, with a focus on women in business. Jannette highlighted that all too often women worry about everybody else and forget to plan ahead for ourselves. We all enjoyed an informal discussion over a glass of wine or two.
The opening on Saturday 16 April of the most diverse art exhibition ever to be held at The Great Lakes Art Society was a great success. Vicki Bullard, the Art Society President, introduced Great lakes Councillor Leigh Vaughn, who opened the exhibition with a reminder to all guests and artists that looking at art is a great mental exercise for old and young alike. This year’s Judge was Robyn Collier, a multi-award winning artist.
Artists from around Australia have entered the exhibition, and there is a wonderful array of works with great variation of subject, style and medium used. Everyone was thrilled to see a number of local artists, including several members of the Art Society receive awards and recognition by many guests of their work on the night.
Cara and Matthew Thrippleton were married at the Anglican church in Forster on 26 March 2011 in front of 100 family and friends. Reception was held at B52’s in the Forster main street. Although the weather wasn’t quite what was wished for, the showers of rain stopped when it had to, and a great day was had by all.
Andrew and Brooke Kidd’s wedding was held on 19 February. The girls enjoyed the morning getting ready in some amazing accommodation on the beachfront at Boomerang Beach. The ceremony was held on the lake shore out the front of the Pacific Palms Rec Club. The day was enjoyed by around 125 friends and family. Andrew grew up in the area and has plenty of family living in the region. The reception went perfectly, and a great night was had by all at the Pacific Palms Rec Club.
I look forward to hearing from you with any events you would like me to write about.
