BELLARINE YOUNGER VETERANS – BAREFOOT BOWLS NOV 2018

The first event for the Younger Vets sub-committee was highly successful.  About fifty people of all ages bowled together under beautiful weather and enjoyed afternoon tea and drinks in the Member’s Bar.  Information was collected regarding preferences for future events and a few people requested RSL membership forms.  Our president thanked all for attending and assured them that the RSL was here to support all service men and women.  Our next event is a coffee chat at Mr Grubb’s – 10am on Wednesday 27th February.
