Vietnam Veterans Branch - Autumn 2017
Our Annual General Meeting was held in the Air Force Association Headquarters on Sunday 12 February 2017 and
was preceded by a light lunch and presentation of the AFA Foundation Bursary Awards by AFA Victorian President
Carl Schiller and the Encouragement Awards made possible by two RAAF VVA Committee members.
There have been some changes to the Executive this year with Chris Hudnott assuming the role of President and Max
McGregor as Vice President. Most members will know that after 12 years as Secretary, Rick Holmes has decided to
take a back seat on the Committee and Gill Coughlan has taken on the role of Secretary.
Our monthly lunches at the Mail Exchange Hotel will continue this year on the 3rd Wednesday of each month. This
venue is conveniently located just across Spencer Street from Southern Cross Station and is a great opportunity for
members and partners to enjoy the company of colleagues and reminisce about the good old days in the RAAF.
Anzac Day will again provide us with the opportunity to reflect and commemorate the service and sacrifice of so
many during the Dawn Service and March. After the March, we are again planning to get together for lunch at the
Orient East Restaurant. This would have to be the closest restaurant to the Shrine (only a short 5-minute walk away)
so do plan to attend this function if you can.
So that we can cater/accommodate appropriately, could you please let the secretary know of your intention to join us
for lunch by the end of March by either a phone message on 03 8774-0646 or email email@example.com.
