61 Members and family came to our first lunch at the William Angliss Restaurant. We welcomed Anita Siassos and Arun Nangia to their first ANZROC meeting and our youngest Member Elina Law, who manages our Website plus baby Gary. We stood to remember our departed Honorary Members Dave Brookman and Don Ranyard who sadly passed away during the month.
The venue provided tremendous food and service at a very reasonable price and we will consider returning there next year. Our special guest Major Brendan Nottle from the Salvation Army gave us an update on the work the SA are doing to help the homeless in Victoria. He also provided an entertaining account of his epic walk to Canberra earlier this year. Ron Adams presented over $2000 to Brendan from the Members present at the lunch.
We also celebrated Ron's 80 th birthday with a tasty black forest cake to finish off proceedings.
Well done Joan Nathan and Noel Beanland for finding the venue and organising the lunch.
