Clive submitted this CRFM report for the Bulletin:

• Stallholder Attendance: A very busy market with an increased stallholder attendance (107) and public patronage.

• Mid-Year Census: Sat 14 May is our mid-year/winter census day when we count our customers.  As ever, we will be looking for up to 6 volunteers, working in pairs, to help from 06.30-11.00AM.  Clive will be in attendance throughout (with clipboard) to guide and help.

• CRFM Progressive Budget Achievement: As advised to the April Board meeting,  CRFM budget achievement remains on track.

• Triennial WHS Survey: David Segrott, Principal, Australian Health & Safety Services P/L will be conducting our triennial WHS survey of our CRFM operation at our EPIC venue on Sat 7 May at a heavily discounted rate ($1,000) for us.

• CRFM Club Presentation: Members of the CRFM committee will deliver an historical and contemporary review of our market operation in a presentation to be held at the club’s 3 May ‘Versatile’ venue meeting.


Quite a few of us attended a joint meeting at Rotary Club of Ginninderra last Tuesday where we heard Ginninderra's guest speakers from the Australian War Memorial tell us about the formation of the Australian Women's Army Service (AWAS) in 1941 to "release men from certain military duties for employment in fighting units."

The AWAS was the only non-medical women's service to send personnel overseas during the war; in 1944 and 1945 AWAS served in both Dutch and Australian New Guinea. By 30 June 1947 all members had been demobilised.
