Fiji Geelong Friendship Club

from w
Our network of Fiji families in the Geelong region has meetings about once a fortnight in homes of members, and last night our friends came to our home for kava, talanoa and a lovely shared meal.  Our members come from Macuata, Bua, Yacata, Namosi, Levuka, Tonga, Coral Coast and other places in Fiji. Recently our group sent four boxes of school items to Mataso Primary School in Ra, and with a grant from the Victorian government Multicultural Commission of $1200 this year we will be able to provide many services to our community and cultural events.  We might be singing next in late November so we'd better practice up our laga, druku, tagica and tenor parts!
