Hello to all members and friends of the Swiss Club of WA
Hopefully everyone is enjoying the freedom that we have here in Perth. There will be a time where we hope to 'open' up our State and country again, we have to do what is required to achieve that, which hopefully is not far off.
The year is well and truly moving along and only a few weeks until the shortest day of the year and all sun seekers can look forward to more vitamin D.
There are a couple of events coming up in June and a couple of 'Save the Date' announcements below:
Games / Wienerli and Potato Salad (20 June)
On Sunday the 20th of June, we invite you to a games afternoon at the Wembley Community Centre. We meet at 2pm for an early afternoon tea and some fierce game playing. We will also be serving an early dinner of Wienerli and Potato Salad.
Please bring along your 'Eile mit Weile', Schach/Chess, Backgammon, Cards and whatever other table games you have to challenge others. There is an outside area, so also bring a ball, cricket set, Hornussen, your giant jenga or other games.
