Weekly Dispatches 24 April

Here are the quilts and laundry bags of this week.  
Before you enjoy the pics I just want to take a moment to say I hope that everyone has a good day tomorrow.  

For some ANZAC Day is a time to get together with your mates, attend the dawn service, march with your mates and down a few cold ones. 

For one special group ANZAC Day can be a challenge as it brings to the surface much that still causes pain. 

For others ANZAC Day is an excuse to sleep in and spend time with your family.  

If you are in the last group can I please ask that whatever you do tomorrow, please spare a thought for our past serving members, many of whom died or returned forever changed so that we could live the life of freedom we enjoy today.  Please also remember those who are serving today, often far from their loved ones, far from our beautiful country.  Do not take the freedom of this country for granted. Please raise a toast at lunch time, talk to your kids about what ANZAC Day means, watch the march on TV or simply spend a few quiet minutes and reflect on how lucky we are to live in this country and how very lucky we are to have men and women who are willing to fight to keep it that way.

488 quilts and 626 laundry bags for 2015. 

4073 quilts and  6083 laundry bags in total.

These next three laundry bags were started by the ladies that sew at our Penrith Sewing Days but were finished by Sue G.  Thanks to all.


Finally, I wrote this for our deployed members this year.  I printed it out postcard size and included it in their parcels in the lead up to ANZAC Day. I have shared it on Facebook but this is for those that do not see the Facebook page.  I hope you enjoy it.
