Honouring midwives on their International day

Many of us have a midwife to thank for our safe arrival from the womb, these specialised 'catching' hands are a blessing to both mum and bub in hospitals and in the home.

I went to Murwillumbah High School from 1979 to 1984. Some of that cohort left in 1982 and OMG that is 30 years ago.

We have had a few catch-ups since then but we are going all out this time to get as many people to the Murwillumbah Bowls Club (which is open for functions) on Saturday 6 October. Evening will start at 6.30. There is finger food and a DJ, although I am not sure who will find time to dance when there will be so much to talk about. Cost is $20 per person.

The next day we are telling people to head to the Tumbulgum Tavern with their families to try to have more time to chat to everyone.

We have a web page http://www.murwillumbahnetball.org.au, which is the easiest way to keep up with plans.
