An expo, retreat and wedding at the RSL Hall

Mayor Mick Curran meets stallholders and visitors at the info dayLast month, we had a couple of successes at the sub-branch. Firstly, the Community Information Day at the sub-branch, attended by roughly 50 governmental and community groups and sponsored by 4GY, Gympie Regional Council and Veterans Affairs.

This was well-attended by all the community and Mayor Mick Curran, who visited and talked to many of the stallholders and visitors.

The second event worthy of mention for the month was the success of our grant application for the construction of a Veterans Retreat, an extension of the verandah. The grant was presented by Darren Chester (Minister for Veterans Affairs) and Llew O’Brien (our local Federal member).

After the big storm, we had an urgent enquiry about holding a wedding in the sub-branch hall. With all hands-on deck, we were able to accommodate the bride and groom to have a very successful wedding ceremony and reception.

By all accounts, the day was a success and the bride and groom were very happy with the result. So, if anyone else is interested in holding an event, contact the sub branch!
