BRANCH PRESIDENTS' MEETING & CHRISTMAS PARTY

Date: Wednesday Dec 4, 2019, 10:30 am

AFA quarterly Branch Presidents' meeting, commencing at 10.30 a.m., followed by the AFA Annual Christmas Party commencing at 12 noon.  All members welcome to the Christmas Party.  

This year our guest speaker will be SQNLDR Glen Coy, the Operations Manager of the Air Force Museum. Glen will provide us with a general briefing of the activities that are ongoing at the Museum, along with some of the difficulties with maintaining and scheduling of the aircraft that the Museum operate. Keeping these old aircraft in an airworthy condition is not an easy task, let alone the challenges of keeping the pilots suitably qualified.

We will also be unveiling another painting of Point Cook in 1914 by the distinguished aviation artist Norm Clifford. Our thanks go to Ted Bushell for this most generous gift.

We may be restricted by numbers, so I request that you advise Barb Stallard on 9813 4600 or office@raafavic.org.au, if you plan to attend. Once we reach capacity, we will have to close the books and run a standby list in case anyone cancels prior to the day.

Looking forward to seeing you on December 4.

Meet-A-Mate / Mid Year Function

Date: Thursday Jun 28, 2018, 12:00 pm

Guest Speaker will be AFA member Jack Bell.  Jack is a sprightly centenarian and recently spoke at the Shrine of Remembrance for the Victory in Europe commemoration. As well as covering his Air Force service in WW2, Jack also spoke of his experience as a prisoner of war. All who heard Jack speak at the Shrine were amazed with not only the story he told, but specifically the message he most strongly made - that of compassion. It was truly an uplifting presentation, something that we as Air Force Association members can be extremely proud of.
