The December-January edition of The Southern Yarn bridges the start of a new decade as we enter 2020. We’ve got reports on the not-so-formal dinner, the AGM, the Christmas party, and other club events, Give it a read, and we look forward to seeing you all next year.
And here are some photos from the Christmas party that we could not fit into the Yarn.
Need to renew or apply for your Australian passport?
Representatives of the Australian High Commission in Ottawa are coming to Winnipeg on Tuesday August 28 to conduct passport interviews and address related concerns and questions. Note that you need an appointment for each application lodged.
If your passport is due to expire, this is your chance to have it renewed and save yourself a trip to Ottawa or Toronto or Vancouver.
Calling our Aussie members and other Australians living in Winnipeg and Manitoba.
If you need to renew your passport, or if the newest additions in your family need to apply for a passport, the Australian High Commission in Ottawa would like to know about it.
Please visit their website and complete a very short survey so they know to visit Winnipeg in 2018. Several of us who need passports renewed this year have already filled out the questionnaire, and the more people who the AHC know about, the more likely we will be on their “must visit” destination list.
Save yourself a trip to Vancouver, Toronto or Ottawa this year or next, and help us bring the AHC to town.
You are cordially invited to join New Zealand High Commissioner Dan Mellsop on Monday April 30 at the King’s Head (120 William in downtown Winnipeg) starting at 7:00 pm.
Dan is keen to meet as many of our community as possible. In his words, “I would be happy to talk about New Zealand’s current activities in Canada and any other topics of interest to the group. I would also be interested to hear from the expat kiwis about their experiences here in Canada.”
If you are able to attend, please let us know at email@example.com or 204-228-9959 so we can get an idea of numbers.
If you aren’t able to attend, but have a question we can ask or information you’d like to share, feel free to email that to us as well.
