    Orphanage Park Millswood - entry from Mitchell St


Hi AHARS members,
                                   I hope that you have had an enjoyable Christmas and are now looking forward to what I hope will be a safe, healthy and prosperous New Year. Earlier this year we conducted a very successful Astronomy/Gastronomy night where 36 attendees were wowed by celestial images after a consuming a comprehensive supper. Those present on the night considered that the Orphanage Park would be a great venue for the annual AHARS BBQ/picnic so the committee has accepted the challenge and all we need is your attendance to make this a successful outing.

There are plenty of shady trees and we are looking at setting up adjacent to Brownhill Creek that wends its way through the park.
