Spring is so close I can almost smell it. And with the weather warming up, those old injuries hurt a little less, so it's a great time to get out and be a part of the community.
There has been a bit going on behind the scenes so this issue is packed! Get into it!
After a long week of bad weather mother nature put on a beautiful day to allow us to commemorate those who gave the ultimate sacrifice in Vietnam. Below are some photos of the day.
The Military Wives Choir is not only for wives... but also siblings, girlfriends, mothers, aunties and children of a service member (over 18 years of age). Even acting/reserve service members can join if rehearsals and performances do not conflict with their work responsibilities.
The group has just started up and keen to encourage membership, not only for the obvious reason of having a choir but also to promote friendship, peer support, positive mental health and all that good stuff that I am sure you agree comes naturally when we join forces in community projects such as this. It also provides a very public show of support for our service men and women which you all know I am very keen to continue in everything I do. As a proud mum of a 3RAR soldier, this choir has a special place in my heart and it will be for my son that I sing.
