Birthday Lunch

Unfortunately, due to circumstances beyond our control, the venue for the Birthday Lunch on 2nd August has been changed to the Kembla Grange Golf Club.

The date and time remain the same only the venue has changed.

Date: 2nd August 2018
Time: 11.30am for Noon
Place: Kembla Grange Golf Club

If you don't already have your ticket to the lunch they will still be available at the next meeting on the 26th July - still only $20 for an excellent two course meal.

Christmas Lunch

Just a reminder that we had to move our Christmas Lunch to Friday, 14th December 2018 for a similar reason. Don’t forget to change the date on your membership card.

HARS Museum

Our last bus trip to the Historical Aircraft Restoration Society was enjoyed by all who attended.
