Maclean RSL Women’s Auxiliary

The Auxiliary held its general meeting on Monday 4 April. President Lynda opened the meeting at 10am and welcomed 12 members and accepted 4 apologies. The Ode was recited and thoughts given to those members experiencing bereavement or illness within their family. Minutes of the March meeting were read and accepted as was the correspondence and Treasurer’s report. General business was spent by the members in finalising details for ANZAC Day commemorations. Poppies and badges will be sold at the following venues: Tartan Brushies – Tuesday 19 April at 10am; Maclean Bowling Club – Wednesday 20 April from 4pm; Maclean Services Club – Thursday 21 April from 5:30pm. We will be holding our ANZAC Day street stall on Friday 22 April 8:30-12 midday. Raffle tickets will also be available for purchase (the raffle will be drawn on ANZAC Day at the luncheon which will be held in the Services Club after the Day Service). If you would like to purchase a poppy or badge but are unable to get to any of the venues above, they will be available on ANZAC Day at the Cenotaph. Ladies are requested to bring their baking, craft; plants etc to the stall and ensure that all baking is labelled with ingredients used. There being no further business the meeting closed at 11pm. Our next meeting will be held on Monday 2 May commencing at 10am in the River Rooms of the Maclean Services Club. We are always looking for new members to join us in our endeavours to fundraise on behalf of the Maclean RSL Sub-Branch. If there are any ladies who are interested in joining our Auxiliary or would just like to come along to see what we are about, please pop in to any of our monthly meetings which are held on the first Monday of the month at 10am in the River Rooms of the Maclean Services Club. Please note that you do not have to have been associated to defence or the ADF in any way to become a member but just have a desire to assist in our fundraising efforts, all of which go towards our ex-serving and current serving members and their families.
