PLEASE NOTE THAT THE MORNING TEAS AT GLADESVILLE HAVE BEEN CANCELLED UNTIL 2021.

After careful consideration, the Cicada committee has made the decision to cancel all remaining Morning teas and BBQ’s for the balance of 2020, including the AGM in November.

Even though cases of Covid-19 are very small at the moment, there is a very real prospect that there will be a spike in numbers as restrictions are lifted.  We are very mindful that many of our members and those that attend our functions are at the age where they are more vulnerable to the virus, which has strongly influenced our decision.

This means that all being well, we can start afresh in 2021.  You can keep up to date by visiting our website, at www.cicada.org.au where information will be posted and updated.   Alternately phone Sue Walters at SCIC on 02 9844 6827  or email This email address is being protected from spambots.

CICADA AUSTRALIA INC is a volunteer support group for cochlear implant recipients and we are hosting this event in conjunction with implant companies to bring awareness to  ICI Day and World Hearing day.
