Thank you so much to the lovely people in our audience last night. We were made to feel so welcome and we thank you for your invitation to share our story. The evening was made all the more special as Wynnum was for many years, home to Jan and her family. As doesn't often happen, Auntie Val, Jan's mum, spoke about the devastating effect her father's conviction and death had on her. Val also acknowledged the grief the Armstrong family too had suffered. This amazing lady's courage in speaking about this painful chapter in her life was rewarded with warm applause...and hugs from old friends.
Much appreciation for our gifts and we look forward to reading 'Mangroves to Moorings Revisited by society member Myrtle Beitz.
