Dear members,

With the conclusion of Term 1 – and wasn’t it wonderful to have an uninterrupted term – I want to wish
everyone a very happy Easter. Easter is a very significant time in the Church’s calendar, reminding us
not only of the crucixion of Christ on Good Friday but also celebrating his resurrection three days
later bringing hope to the world. It is also a time for families and friends to come together to share love
and joy not to mention the occasional Easter egg!

Term 2 and ‘Hit the Road’ implications

We recommence activities and classes on Tuesday 26 April. Course Leaders should note that ‘Hit
the Road’ departs for Avenal on Monday 25 April returning Thursday 28 April. This is a very popular
activity and so will have an impact on some classes, especially those classes whose leader will be
away in Avenal. Leaders should check with their members to establish who will be available and
decide how to proceed based on numbers.

Technology and ‘myGov’ – Monday 23 May

Eastern Regional Libraries have offered to run a short course titled ‘Introduction to myGov’ designed
to show how myGov can make managing your online government services easy and convenient.
They will show you, step-by-step, how to set up and use your own myGov account safely, including
claiming medical expenses and controlling who sees your My Health Record information.
If there is interest (about 15-20 will suffice) the course will run on Monday 23 May between 1.30pm
and 2.30pm in the Courthouse. If you are interested in attending this course please let me know by
Monday 9 May and I will confirm the date with Eastern Regional Libraries.

Finally: With winter imminent please take care. All of us want term 2 to be as productive and
enjoyable as possible.
Stay well, stay safe and take care,
John Pascoe (President)
