Our branch meeting was held at the Sawtell RSL Club on Tuesday the 17th of October. Present were Ian Hodges, Heather Moore, Tony Brown, Peter Chilton, Owen Ellem, Brian Thompson, Deidre Mcleod, David Morris, Hedley & Barbara Gleave, Harley & Rhonda Toms, Doug Tysoe, John & Gwenda Wilkinson, Betty Lyne, Louise Cluley, Bill & Ronnie Scotcher, Bev Clancy, Peg Wilmott, Floyd Ballard, Ruth Boyd and a visitor Bruce Palmer. Bruce intends to become a member of our Branch.

Our member Owen Ellem gave an interesting talk on his coin collecting hobby and circulated several sets of coins for members to view. Our meetings are significant for their fellowship as many of us only meet each other at these times. Members have enjoyed “Retired Police Day” which was held at the Coffs Harbour Police Station on the 7th of September. The Local Area Commander, Superintendent Holahan, Inspector Milner and other members provided a warm welcome as they gave information on methods of modern policing and the technology supporting their service.

A buffet lunch was provided and our members also had the opportunity to share with serving members. It was a very interesting and enjoyable experience. Our thanks is extended to Superintendent Holahan and his staff for their hospitality and also to our Liaison Officer, Garry Heskett for his work in keeping contact with the organisers and in bringing the information regarding this day to our notice. On the 13th of September a Branch B-B-Q was held at the Boambee Creek Reserve. This was well attended and enjoyed.

Some expert cooking was performed along with the partaking of a few thirst quenchers. The food for the day was paid from Branch funds which pleased the Social Director Bill Scotcher. On the mend are, Bob Jones, his wife Kath, Ern Mercer his wife Gloria and Sheila Brown

Our members were saddened when our veteran member Alex Algie passed away on the 12th of October. Alex was 94. A few days before he passed away, he played a golf round of 83 strokes, 11 strokes under his age and at any age, to play under your age in golf is quite an achievement. Until recent times, Alex was a regular at our branch meetings. He was also active in the community of South West Rocks with strong interest in the Country Club and in Legacy.
