July  2018

Attendance at our July General Meeting was 47 including visitors and it appears our earlier start time of 10.00am 

is working well. Those present enjoyed a sausage sizzle following the meeting which is a regular event and allows for 

a little “mateship” for all. 

Reports of the State Congress held recently in Cairns were presented with advice that the proposed Constitution has to be re-structured and so more consultations with sub-branches will occur over the next few months. 

Welfare Officer Rick Black advised some of the veterans he is in contact with in “Care” have expressed a desire to 

attend our General Meetings. He has since sourced the Qld Gov’t initiative of the Taxi Subsidy Scheme which may allow eligible members to use this service. Information is available from: or 1300 134 755
