Screening on Saturday 25th February, 2016

Event Afternoon before JAFWA Screening

JAFWA has the hall from 12:30PM to 4:30PM, where it is make our own amusement time.

Does anybody have their own game machine and games they want their fellow JAFWAites to play? JAFWA will bring out the projector and screen. Sally and Leanne suggested bringing a pool, and water pistols, though I am not certain we have acces to the outdoor area, and we shouldn’t get the Hall wet.

These are just a couple of suggestion. What do you want to do? Just so long as it fun, legal, ethical, and we don’t scuff the floor of the Hall.


Below is the program for the evening of February 25th, 2017.

Does anyone wish to help volunteer on JAFWA’s stall at MadFest? First Weekend in March.

We are asking for volunteers to help person our Bunnings sausage sizzle stand on Saturday 1st April at Cannington. Up you up for it?
