UNITY is keeping busy. After heading down to Jervis Bay to go whale-watching, the crew will make their way to Kembla Grange on Saturday, September 12 for a day at the races. They will also meet for their regular diner’s club on Tuesday, September 15. The venue is yet to be announced, so get in touch with them to find out where to go, to book a table and while you’re at it, see what else is coming up.
A regular fixture in Wollongong, UNITY has been staging dance parties for years, each bringing new people and memories to the Wollongong scene. The next is on November 7 and has a Mad Hatters Tea Party theme -” plenty of time to organise a costume.
For those with a more expressive side, UNITY is also presenting the first of its Fruity First Fridays, which will be held on the first Friday every two months. The first of these is entitled -˜Drag it up’ and will be on September 4 from 7.30pm at the Phoenix Theatre (24 Bridge St, Coniston). For more info contact UNITY at: info@unity-wollongong.org or check out their Facebook page for details of upcoming events.
