The Linnet Old Girls are organising (together with the church) a Thanksgiving Service to be held at the Epping Presbyterian Church, 9 Bridge Street, Epping on Saturday 8 October 2011 at 2pm, followed by afternoon tea in the church hall.

The Linnets also plan to follow afternoon tea with a couple of hours of singing favourite choir songs, so please dust off your music and bring it along too! All welcome.
