24th November – Travel Tales

Our last Travel Tales for this year was by Michael Broomhall who shared with 30 members his trip to Sri Lanka and the Maldives.

With a size smaller than Tasmania, a population of over 21 million people and Buddhism the prominent religion Sri Lanka certainly was an interesting program. Following Sri Lanka Michael spent 4 days on the tiny Maldives.

Thanks so much Michael for a very entertaining and informative afternoon.

28th November – Tea and Tour for 10 ($10)

We visited the Warrnambool Library and Learning Centre today. Jackie our guide showed us through the myriad of spaces that have been designed to cater for all ages and interests of kids and adults. Light, space and views have been incorporated into every level. The three storey contemporary building was completed last October and links the TAFE campus to the existing Gun & Orderly Room which was constructed in 1868 & now refurbished creating the new main library entrance.

If you haven’t visited this amazing facility then consider checking it out next time you’re in Warrnambool.
