PRESIDENTS NOTE
The world is changing at a very rapid rate.  To think that we were able to meet at Kooyong last week, being mindful of social distancing, and this week to be in a total State of Emergency is both confronting and challenging.  I trust that all members are in good health both mentally and physically.

JEST FOR A LAUGH

'Hahahaha'

They laughed.

They laugh at my insecurities, 

They laugh at my embarassing moments, 

They laugh at my face, 

They laugh at me. 

They laugh, they laugh, they laugh.

They don't seem to care or realize

They just laugh, 

And I don't think it's funny at all.
