Newsletter No. 4 of 2019


Hello Members,


Welcome to this latest newsletter which will bring you up to date on outings for the rest of the year. This follows a visit to Hobart last month. The organisation in getting that tour successfully completed speaks highly of our travel agents, Flight Centre Camden. Their agent Debbie Eyers, checked in with me after the visit to welcome all home and to check on any problems.



Membership has crept up to 272.

November – Friday 22 November – Traditional X Mas Harbour Cruise


December – Thursday 19 December – Xmas Lunch at RSL


Third Thursday of the month at 4pm – Happy hour get together. For those who can make it.



Thanks to all those who contribute to either in the selling the tickets or purchasing some. We have made an adjustment to the meat trays we raffle as it is felt we will get better benefit and so will the customer in offering 5 smaller trays rather than 2 large trays which weigh a ton if you are carrying them around. It is intended to subsidise Club Lunches for members with these proceeds.


Cheers, Garry Brigden
