At the recent PASA Council meeting Council discussed the implications of the COVID-19 virus for PASA’s activities. It was the unanimous decision of the Councillors present to
cancel all PASA events planned until the end of July.


The events cancelled are:

• Pub Lunch (April 1)

• Fairfield Same Ships group meeting (April 8)
• Junior Pioneers Visit to the Adelaide Central Market (April 16)

• Pioneer Lunch Event at the Police Historical Museum (June 3)

• Fairlie Same Ships group meeting (June 10);
• PASA visit to Kangaroo Island (July 24-28)

While our office at Leigh Street is closed, a keen band of volunteers are working from their home offices to ensure it is "Business as Usual'. Research data from Shipping Groups is being entered, general enquires answered by phone and email,
membership applications are being processed and monies received.

We hope we will be back at Leigh Street soon.
