You are cordially invited to attend Bridging Lanka's inaugural Annual General Meeting, to be held on Saturday 6th February at 12 noon, Armagh House, 226 Kooyong Road, Toorak. The meeting will report on the significant reconciliation and rebuilding work being carried out in Sri Lanka's north in Mannar District, of both its rewards and challenges. Also at the meeting, Professor David and Mrs Jan de Kretser will be launching the 500 Bridging Club, an opportunity to support the unique 'in country' activities of Australia's Sri Lankan community and its supporters. In addition Larry Marshall and Cynthia McKenzie will share their experiences of leading a Uniting Journeys group of visitors to Mannar on a tour focused on linking donkey welfare, village economic development and cultural tourism. Please feel free to invite members of your family and friends to what is shaping up to be an inspirational event. A short and sharp AGM will be followed by a celebratory lunch, the launch of the 500 Bridging Club and engaging presentations by the guest speakers. In all, a two hour event.
