Congratulations Dawn on your 80th Birthday!

Last month our past President/Chairwomen ‘Dawn Fleming’ celebrated her 80th Birthday.  In true Dawn’s style she celebrated this milestone with over 100 guests at a lunch held in her honour at ‘Southern Golf Club’, Melbourne.  This event was celebrated with Dawns family, some who flew in from the USA, many long term friends, business & horticultural friends and of course her golfing mates.

Those attending were thrilled to also find that were to be a part of her new book launch, a book titled ‘Dawn’.  Dawn not shy when it comes to the art of writing has used this book to recount some of her letter writing, memories and emotions as she and Don have travelled the world.

The book is being offered to our EWHA membership for a price of $50.00 plus postage.  If you are interested you can inquire through info@ewha.com.au

EWHA is so proud of Dawn and will always be inspired by her personal drive to achieve her goals and remain stead fast to her values.
