Screening on Saturday 12th May 2018

Below is the program for the evening of Saturday May 12th, 2018.

As we enter May, we realise that Perth’s summer is but a fading memory. We are in the season of farewells, “Lupin III” being tonight’s farewell. But not a final farewell, as there are more adventures of the world’s greatest thief on the horizon.
It is also that time of year, with the AGM approaching in July, that our dear JAFWAites need to consider how the JAFWA committee has been doing, and more importantly step up and nominate for the elections so that some us may get some rest. Did you enjoy the Bunnings sausage sizzle we ran last week, on the Revenge of the Fifth?
