The Chatswood RSL Social & Recreation Club Incorporated (INC1601248) was established in 2016 to provide members, particularly seniors, with well organised outings and overnight visits to historical sites and places of interest.
Application forms are available from both receptions or can be downloaded via the link to the right. Bring the completed form, along with a one-off $5 membership fee to reception staff to join.
Welcome to this latest newsletter which will bring you up to date on outings for the rest of the year. This follows a visit to Hobart last month. The organisation in getting that tour successfully completed speaks highly of our travel agents, Flight Centre Camden. Their agent Debbie Eyers, checked in with me after the visit to welcome all home and to check on any problems.
Membership has crept up to 272.

Third Thursday of the month at 4pm – Happy hour get together. For those who can make it.
Thanks to all those who contribute to either in the selling the tickets or purchasing some. We have made an adjustment to the meat trays we raffle as it is felt we will get better benefit and so will the customer in offering 5 smaller trays rather than 2 large trays which weigh a ton if you are carrying them around. It is intended to subsidise Club Lunches for members with these proceeds.
Cheers, Garry Brigden
