RAACA Inc (Victorian Branch) Birthday
72nd Anniversary 11 Feb 2018
The attendance numbers were up compared to last year, and the event ran well, although some initially congregated at the memorial tree in the Shrine grounds until they realised it was being held in the Sanctuary. Many of those who attended took the opportunity to catch up with old mates at the afternoon tea which was provided after. It was discussed that it appeared the cost for catering seemed expensive and alternatives should be considered for future activities.

Good afternoon Gentlemen,
The following has been received from Jim Hislop for widest dissemination: Dear Ladies and Gentlemen, Attached is the submission we presented to Minister Tehan's office some 8 weeks ago and they are still working through our claims which we expect they will reject. For those of you that assisted with the petitions to the Upper and Lower Houses we thank you for your support we anticipate these will be tabled during the Budget sittings.
We need to get the attachment on as many web sites as possible and if your organisation is prepared to assist by uploading the submission we would be most appreciative, this whole process has been carried by Herb and I and now we need some tangible support. If you are prepared to upload the document to your web site could you please let me know the site details so that I can notify our supporters and they can read the document. If you are concerned about the content you could always include a disclaimer.
We will distribute another update as soon as we get a response form Canberra.
Yours in the fight for DFRDB justice, Jim
