Vale Vivian Kershaw

On October 17th we said farewell to one of our original members, Viv Kershaw. Members joined Viv’s family and friends at a memorial service in Ocean Grove that was full of love, memories and flowers. Pat Scott gathered a gorgeous bunch of flowers from the Community Garden for the memorial.
