Come all ye wonderful JAFWA members, and nominate for the upcoming annual JAFWA election (see below) and join the committee.

Nominees will be invited to the next JAFWA committee meeting to see how it is done.

We thank Sally for last week’s sausage sizzle, and apologise that the extractor fan in the kitchen wasn’t working. Oh, but didn’t it smell wonderful.

This week at JAFWA we have a couple of preview items, one of which can pretend to be historical. Come along for the cultural immersion.
