ST PATRICKS DAY LUNCHEON MEETING 15TH MARCH 2012
70 ANZROC Members and partners attended a most enjoyable St Patrick’s Day Luncheon at the Maroondah Club on 15 March. This is the third year we have held the event and members and partners relished the opportunity to catch up with colleagues and their partners and reminisce about their years in the bank. The camaraderie of members and partners created a terrific atmosphere and the green serviettes and green attire worn by some of those in attendance, added to the Irish theme. The Maroondah Club generously donated bottles of wine to the members to supplement the ANZROC wine contribution of $200.
Senior Vice President John McPhee warmly welcomed members and partners and thanked Lyn and Les Stevens for the work they put into arranging the venue of the Maroondah club and also our Social Subcommittee member David Knuckey and wife Glen for organising the event. John also thanked the Maroondah Club management and catering staff that were so crucial in ensuring the occasion was such a success.
With the formal part of the luncheon over, our resident Leprechaun (Kevin Mitchell) firstly presented Gary Mason with an Esanda Football Club tie he had found in his travels and then entertained the assembly telling a large number of Irish tales without notes and much to the enjoyment of all in attendance.
Members not seen for a while included Herman Bettonvil, Wendy Bradley, Keith Diamond, John Flyger, John Goodwin, Hedley Ham, Bruce Kells, Graeme King, Jacqui Luckman, Don Ranyard, Bernie Sowersby and Evon Whalen.
