Hi good people,

I regret to tell you that Mavis’ Kitchen is having a big event on the 3rd Saturday of this month and has apologized they can’t host NRG for the June meeting.

We have been assured of a welcome at the UKi Cafe , just South of the war memorial (next to Uki school.) Noon to 2 PM.

Food and drinks available. Spread the word, please. We have some important news on the Limpinwood logging situation and other issues on our agenda like water mining and forest laws/rules changes . Candidates are now endorsed for some of the elections due this coming year.

Results of the World Enviro Day, etc. Please send any new agenda items to Sledge before Friday.

Cheers,
Sledge
