Socials


The SAS organises 3 to 4 Socials each year for Professional and Associate Members to gather, share stories and meet each other in a friendly and supportive environment. Socials are free of charge for all Professional and Associate Members. Guests pay $10. The Socials are normally for adults only, but we usually  organise one social for families per year

“Community is formed only by shared stories, not by monologues.  Empathic listening is followed, in time by reciprocal storytelling.  I know I have a place in the community not only as I hear and accept its stories but as it hears and makes room for mine.”

Daniel Taylor, author & Professor of English, Bethel Univ. -
