These VIPs were given this luncheon in deep appreciation for all their dedicated time and efforts in collecting donations and selling POPPIES for Remembrance Day at various locations. Volunteering is about giving your time to meet and greet people of all ages and enjoying yourself as well. Unfortunately we had some who couldn’t make it on the day. Sorry you missed it, you were thought of on the day.
This year – 2015 – is especially important to the Victoria Park RSL Sub Branch with the focus being on the Memorial Wall for the WW1 Victoria Park Veterans, where relatives can come and show respect to family members along with the general public. This project has also involved extremely dedicated and capable Volunteers giving many, many hours to researching and verifying all the relevant information received. Well done to them. We are also fortunate to have a very dedicated gardener coming in each fortnight to “keep up appearances” around the Sub Branch.
A very friendly and noisy mob enjoyed a variety of 3 course meal selections. Delicious.
A piece of trivia. After leaving ANZAC House one couple got caught by, the then upcoming GIANTS geyser Promotion, although warned by one of the operators of the giant marionettesaka Liliputians dressed in red, one in particular had the daylights frightened out of them because you couldn’t tell exactly when the noisy rush of air and water would blow.
