Mosman Seniors Centre
The Mosman Seniors’ Centre is open and allows up to 15 people to attend. As a start we are Zooming our Wednesday morning sessions into the centre. The Zoom screen is projected onto the large screen in the Centre. We are conscious of the plight of our members who cannot Zoom and have restricted attendance to those members. Successful meetings have been held for the few weeks each with more than 10 members attending. If you know anyone who cannot Zoom and may be interested in attending, please ask them to enrol by phoning Olivier Strobel, who is coordinating this, at Council on 9978 4128.
