In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, the 2020 War Widows’ Walk & Picnic in Concord is deemed as a high-risk event due to the virus’ potential to spread among our Members who are more vulnerable. Therefore, it is with great sadness that I write to you about the Board’s decision to cancel this year’s War Widows’ Walk & Picnic, which was scheduled for Thursday, 10 September 2020. This decision was not easy, but we believe that we are acting in our Members’ best interests.
Over the years, we have seen the War Widows’ Walk & Picnic celebrate companionship and camaraderie in a wonderful space at Concord. While we are unable to enjoy this gathering and the living memorial of the Kokoda Track, I trust that we will continue to build our resilience, both personally and as an organisation as we have done in the past.
As always, if you need any support or help during these challenging times, please do not hesitate to call me or our office staff on 02 9267 6577.
Thinking of you,
Rhondda Vanzella OAM
President and Chair, Australian War Widows NSW Ltd
