COS SITA UPDATE
We had planned to have Cos Sita as our special guest speaker at our May Meeting, along with Pino Gattellaro (Sunshine Tours)

However, in the lead up Cos’ mother sadly passed away so we postponed the guest speaker appearance until September, on Cos' wishes.

Recently, the committee made contact with Cos to reconfirm his attendance. Unfortunately, after a change to his travel plans, Cos will be in transit back from Italy on this day, so we will unfortunately have to postpone it till another time.

In his place, Geoff Foster will present “Buses of Eastern Europe” featuring dozens of highlights from his recent overseas trip.
