Screening on the evening of Saturday, May 28th 2022

No Event Afternoon this week!
We have come to the end of the month of May, and you know what that means – our monthly JAFWA Member’s Prize draw will take place. In addition to the chance to win the weekly Door Prize draw.

This week we will have one more preview episode before the Dinner Break.
For during the Dinner Break we shall have the Survey to see what you, our dear JAFWAites, enjoy and appreciate in the JAFWA program. And not just any Survey, for the results of this one will strongly influence the choosing of the new regular program items being introduced in June and July (as the current regular items finish). This survey will include the best results of previous surveys! JAFWA, you decide!


This is another reminder to think about the upcoming Annual General Meeting and committee elections in July. We request that all signed up members come along that afternoon to find out how the current committee have been doing over the last year, discuss issues to be dealt with, raise motions for actions to be carried out in your names, and then in the evening Dinner Break, vote in the new committee.

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.
