2015 has been a busy year, and with things coming to a close we have much to celebrate! We have a very special Christmas Celebration this year and are delighted to announce the Merry Melanesian Wing-Ding!
The Merry Melanesian Wing-Ding
Tuesday Dec 29th, 1:00pm - 5:00pm
Iris Griffith Centre
To kick things off, we are delighted to have Dr. Rand Rudland giving his talk about the Birds, Mammals, and Culture of Melanesia. Dr. Rudland is a physician hailing from Halfmoon Bay who has spent his recent years aboard the Spirit of Enderby, touring the tropical archipelago of Melanesia. His off-duty visits to some of the more remote islands have allowed him to experience the unique culture and natural history of the area, and to understand the effects of globalization and climate change on the small islands.
Dr. Rudland’s talk will cover his experiences exploring the dense rainforest and coastal marine ecosystems, from birds to fish, and reptiles to mammals. Be prepared to step into a new world of exotic beauty!
Following the talk, there will be a post-Christmas Potluck Dinner, accompanied by entertainment from our very own Harbour Ukulele Band, and the inimitable Joe Stanton with his guitar.
To celebrate the occasion of Dr. Rudland’s visit, the theme will be tropical – please feel free to dress in exotic costumes and coconuts!
So get our your brightly coloured apparel and dancing shoes and prepare yourselves for the Merry Melanesian Wing-Ding!
The perfect antidote to the excesses of the holiday season, and a good way to get into the party mood for the New Year!
