2017 Christmas Banquet
Members, partners, our exchange student Ona and guests enjoyed a lovely festive atmosphere at our annual Christmas banquet. We welcomed Sam's parents from New Zealand together with Jax and Mac. It was also wonderful that our 2018 outbound RYE student to Spain Jasmine, together with her mum Carol, dad Trevor and brother Hayden could join us.
Our President Phil sent Christmas Greetings to all members and their families from Canberra. Tony Krsticevic MLA was also unable to attend but sent warm Christmas wishes.
Members and guests tucked in to a selection of traditional Greek salad, coleslaw, dinner rolls, leg ham and roast turkey breast with chestnut stuffing, roast root vegetables and mixed steamed vegetables with rich gravy and cranberry sauce. Traditional warm plum pudding with custard rounded out the festive meal.
It was lovely to welcome our honorary auditor, Peter and his wife Pauline to our festivities. Robyn acknowledged his work, thanked him for his continued support and presented him with a bottle of his favourite beverage.
Stuart gave the results of the traditional Christmas golf and Dawn supplied her legendary Christmas fruit cake, which is always enjoyed by all.
Several roving photographers were out and about and managed to record just some of good times enjoyed by members and guests.
