Screening on Saturday 30th April 2022

Screening on the evening of Saturday, April 30th 2022

We thank everyone who attended last week’s marathon anime afternoon. An apology for the movie running over-length, we are a little out of practice with marathon screenings. Hope everybody enjoyed the movie. Perhaps we should have more practice? Something to consider for the AGM in July.
At any rate, the episodes of “non non biyori repeat”, and “uramichi-oniisan” that we were forced to skip last week, will be pushed instead to this week.

We have reached the end of the month of April already. So you know what that means – the monthly JAFWA member prize.
Also, we will have our member survey, where you tell us what you enjoy on the JAFWA program by ranking regular items and recent preview items.
But that is not all! We have a preview episode before the Dinner Break, that will hopefully demonstrate the effort of taking it easy.

Ya Boy Kongming!

Still looking for a couple of volunteers to help out at our next Bunnings Sausage Sizzle fundraiser, to be held Saturday May 7th at Cannington Bunnings.

Cash for Containers

As people may have noticed, JAFWA collects the recyclable containers (cans and bottles) that are disposed of by our attendees. It helps in a small way.

if you too would like to help JAFWA, and get rid of your unwanted recyclable containers, then please take them to Containers for Change, and quote JAFWA’s account number – C10505693.

Covid-19 Safety Precautions

We continue taking precautions to limit the possible future waves of CoVid-19, and we ask that you co-operate and even help where possible with our efforts to keep you safe – some social distancing, extra cleaning with antiseptic, library under limited access, etc. Also, we must ask that anyone unfortunate enough to be infected to not attend JAFWA until they are contagion free.
– Help is always welcome during set-up and pack-up due to the extra duties imposed by COVID-19 precautions.
– Please arrive early to confirm personal details due to COVID 19 regulations. There will be Contact Tracing, either by the SafeWA app on your keitai (mobile phones), or by signing in at the contact tracing sheet near the entry.
– We are now required by City of South Perth to check our attendees’ Vaccine status.
