Our Bondi Family is saddened by the unexpected passing of long-time Bondi guest
Leighann Wichman in mid-October.
She has been part of our Bondi Gang since she was very young -- just this summer we found some old "scripts" that had been written by Leighann and her brother David, fabulous re-writes based on Star Wars written by young and enthusiastic fans. They made us smile, and when we returned them to David and Leighann, they made them laugh out loud. We have many great memories of Leighann, and her entire family, here with us.
For the past several summers, she's been back here with brother David -- and they were a 'fixture' floating about in the bay at least twice a day.
Leighann was the Executive Director of the YOUTH PROJECT in Nova Scotia, where she made an enormous contribution to the LGBT community, and her loss will be sorely felt.
Here as well. God Speed Leighann. It was an honour to call you a friend.
