Weekly Bulletin for Saturday 26th November, 2016

JAFWA Geek Swap Mart

This is it! Saturday afternoon we have JAFWA’s Geek Swap Meet. All tables sold, so there are plenty of sellers. And we will be running a small sausage sizzle. Come one, come all!


Below is the program for the evening of November 26th, 2016.
Something to sit down to watch, after the Swap Meet. And George from Gosnells Deli will attend with a sample of what Gosnells residents can acquire.

This will be JAFWA’s last regular screening for 2016, until we return in January. However, don’t forget the End of Year special JAFWA screening of December 10th.
This week we will have a preview of the new Chii’s Sweet home anime, and another adaption of a Kenji Miyazawa story. And we have the two final episodes of “GATE” so as not to leave a cliff-hanger over the New Year break.
