Keeping in Contact
The Sub Branch sees social connection as a mainstay of assisting with the wellbeing of veterans. To that end, there is a regular weekly social get together in the Lounge every Friday afternoon from 3:00pm. The priority of the activity is the gathering of veterans to enjoy the company of each other in a friendly and safe environment.
The evening consists of trivia, members’ draw and raffles, but most importantly, camaraderie.
Throughout the year the Sub Branch conducts fund raisers for worthy causes. These are normally conducted on the last Friday of the month as part of the regular Friday social get together. Organisations funds are raised for include veteran groups, breast cancer research, prostate cancer research, or any other worthy charity. Check out the calendar to see when the next fund raiser is on and join in the fun for a worthy cause.
In addtion to the regular Friday social get together, the Sub Branch also hold other functions, ranging from our annual Veterans Spring Ball, along with dance functions and theme nights in the Sub Branch and the end of year Christmas function.
