FOCIS General Meeting scheduled for Saturday 9 May 2020 has been cancelled

To the members of the Friends of Churchill Island Society,

Here is a message on behalf of the FOCIS Executive Committee.

As many of you would know, the Nature Parks Board has made the very difficult decision to temporarily close the Penguin Parade, Koala Conservation Reserve, Antarctic Journey, and Churchill Island.

As a consequence, the FOCIS General Meeting that was scheduled for Saturday 9 May 2020 has been cancelled.

Hopefully we will still be able to go ahead with the Annual General Meeting currently scheduled for Saturday 15 August 2020.

Regards,
Tom O’Dea, Treasurer
