Rotary clubs hold joint meeting
The Rotary Club of Umina Beach met for a joint meeting with the Rotary Club of Woy Woy.
The two clubs were addressed by local historian and author Ms Patricia Skeehan.
"Patricia related her research into the difficult times surrounding the 1918 Influenza epidemic in Australia, and the effects on its citizens," said Umina club publicity officer Mr Pat Lewis. "She spoke about the places and methods whereby the disease was confronted, and interestingly, some of the unhelpful community attitudes we have again seen in the present Covid pandemic.
"She went on to talk about some of the aspects of the First World War warfront in Flanders and the involvement of Australians including participants from our area."
