Due to Covid-19 restrictions, our first meeting for the year was not held until Monday 8 March 2021. We had a large crowd with over 80 staying for a meal of Cottage Pie and Vegetables.
The meeting opened with a Homage focussed on the 100th anniversary of the formation of the Australian Air Force. A busy agenda included congratulations to Rob Sweet on him being award an OAM for his service and commitment to the RSL.
It was most pleasing to see the meeting well attended by our valuable WW2 Veterans.
On Friday 12 March, our members paid a visit to the Aviation Heritage Museum at the Air Force Memorial Estate in Bullcreek. A couple of hours were spent inspecting the collection with Guides provided by the R.A.A.F. Association. The tour was followed by Lunch (at our members expense), and although Paul McGuinness, our Social Activities Coordinator, eventually received his Chicken Pie, all agreed that it was a resounding success.
A highly recommended visit and lunch
On Friday 26 March a group went to ANZAC House for Lunch and a Tour of the building.
The lunch was Roast Pork with a Pint of Beer or drink of choice. Some opted for an alternative choice, but overall was an excellent meal and venue. It is highly recommended.
Following the meal we were given a tour of the building venues, all having great views over Government House Garden.
We also had a glimpse of the services suites – consisting of medical, treatment and vital support services . Very impressive and when fully functional will be able to provide much needed support and services to our veterans.
Well Done That RSLWA
