Nostalgia- 1995 ANZ Country Heads

The Country Heads of the ANZ International Network came together in Melbourne in 1995 for a conference and this photo is a lasting record of the attendees. After a couple of recent retirements it is believed that not one of those present still works at ANZ.

Maroondah lunch March 17 2011

ST PATRICKS DAY LUNCHEON MEETING 17TH MARCH 2011

A CENTURY AT LAST

 

101 ANZROC Members and partners attended a most enjoyable St Patrick’s Day Luncheon at the Maroondah Club on 17 March. This event is fast becoming a tradition and members and partners relished the opportunity to catch up with workmates and their partners from years gone by

The combination of members and partners created a great party atmosphere and the green serviettes and green attire worn by many in attendance, added to the Irish theme. The Club generously donated bottles of wine to the members to supplement the ROC wine contribution of $200

President Neville Pearson in green Guinness Irish hat warmly welcomed everyone and advised that apologies had been received from:

Graeme Ainscough, , John and Pat Bloom ,Geoff Burton, Geoff Christensen, Col and Ethel Edwards, Lawrie Foord, Norris Gale(in Cambodia),, Ray Gill, Frank and Joan Hatfield ,Keith Higgs, Bruce and Audrey Kells, Geoff Meggs, Joan Nathan, Leigh and Pat O’Neill, Don Taylor, Paul Tovey, Eamon Veaney, Bill Walker, Julie Wilkins,

Neville thanked Lyn and Les Stevens for the work they put into organizing the event with the Maroondah club and for our Social Subcommittee member David Knuckey and wife Glen for their help and support.  Special mention was also made of the support the Maroondah Club management and staff had given and for the catering staff in particular, who were so obliging and professional in ensuring the occasion was such a success

With the formal part of the luncheon over, our resident Leprechaun (Kevin Mitchell) entertained the assembly with a wide rendition of Irish stories (all true I am told) much to the merriment of all in attendance. When yours truly departed from the club, several of our members were endeavoring to empty the pokies, with some success I hope

Members not seen for a while included Wendy Bradley, Roger Brown, Jock Buntain, John Flyger, Barbara Gardiner, David Gibb, John Goodwin, Hedley Ham, Jack Helisma, Doug Imrie, Colin McNamara, Roy Peake, Tom Portelli, John Sanderson, Allen Thorp, David Schunke, Evon Whalen, Glenda White, Roy Willoughby

February 2011 lunch

Around 50 Members attended the February lunch with guest speaker Michael O’Brien  member for Malvern in the Legislative Assembly of the Parliament of Victoria and  Minister for Energy and Resources, the Minister for Gaming and the Minister for Consumer Affairs in the State Government of Victoria. Michael was accompanied by Sarah Leslie his Senior Advisor on Energy. He presented an interesting discourse on his diverse portfolio with particular reference to the problems in Melbourne with late night licensed venues, the proposed reforms of the gaming industry and a good summary of the 'benefits' of the not so smart meters we are all mandated to have installed. There is no point in denying access to the meter installers as we are already paying $70 per year through our energy bills. More to follow in the newsletter.
