The next morning, Jane Stent kindly dropped me at Sheilah Downs’, of SI Lower Hutt. Sheilah told me about the SI Chatline, which I’ve now signed up with, and it is great to be in touch with SI ladies all round the world! Sheilah took me for a delicious lunch at Elaine Moffat’s. It was lovely to meet Elaine and hear stories!
Then we went to see the other SI Lower Hutt ladies at the Dowse.
Here, I am presenting Sheilah with the SI Petaling Jaya pennant.
After tea, Sheilah dropped me at Gillian Buchanan, President of SI Upper Hutt’s home. In the evening, there was a dinner with the SI Upper Hutt ladies. I shared what projects SIPJ was doing with them and they were particularly taken with our Bachelor Auctions for fundraising!
