RAAFVVA/AFA-VV Branch Monthly Luncheon – March 2018

Due our upcoming AGM on Sunday 11th February (hope to see you there), the next monthly luncheon will be held from 1200hrs on Wednesday, 21st March at the MAIL EXCHANGE HOTEL, corner Bourke and Spencer Streets, Melbourne (conveniently located directly opposite Southern Cross Railway Station).

All RAAFVVA and AFA VV Branch members and guests are welcome to enjoy the ambiance of the venue and savour good food (at reasonable prices).   Service is provided by the very friendly hotel staff.

Recent numbers have varied between 4 and 20, but obviously, the more the merrier.  So, if you have an appointment in Melbourne, or just feel like catching up with ‘old’ mates for an hour or two, please arrange to pop into the Mail Exchange and join the camaraderie.   And remember, wives/partners are most welcome.

NB:  If you are planning to attend, please notify Gill Coughlan, our Secretary, by phone on 040 850 3986, or email gilly4346@gmail.com (BY THE MONDAY BEFORE), so she can advise the hotel of expected numbers
