Piccies from today's Penrith Valley Home Based Business Network Christmas Party
[Dec. 4th, 2008|07:27 pm]
I enjoyed this get together even consuming two small glasses of scotch and ginger ale which wasn't included in the $15 fee for entire dinner. It was a pleasure to listen to the newly elected Mayor of Penrith (Jim Aitken) talk about his personal experiences with small business from his early days in Penrith in the 1960s. He ventured into real estate. I was fortunate enough to be at the same table and asked him about the future development for Werrington. He assured me that Werrington has a future but some of the details and timing were sketchy. He is a very very pleasant man seemingly with a devout belief in the divine. There was also an interesting talk by a female who started a small business related to the male dominated security guard industry.
Picture one is from early in the proceedings when some clowns set up a tug of war.
The Xmas dinner was truly excellent. Wow !
The mayor in discussion with some of the many home based business owners in the Penrith area.
The raffle for door prizes. I didn't win anything !
This is new. A tribute to those who fought for our freedoms (opposite David Bradbury's electoral office and the RSL [ Returned Services League] club ) where I sometimes go for interesting National Institute of Accountant lectures. The trade union advertising that used to annoy former Liberal MP Jackie Kelly has long since disappeared. I believe there may be some pictures of this embedded somewhere in this journal.
.. and a few shops on the corner of Woodriffe Street and Penrith High Street. The one on the left is listed as an Eros Association outlet. The Xmas dinner was hosted in the Bowling Club in Woodriffe Street.
If you've never been to the Penrith Valley region of outer Western Sydney I recommend it. On Saturday I will take up the invitation to visit my painter friend from the NEIS program in the Blue Mountains. He told me he has new paintings on the walls.
