Some of our members have had stays in hospital over the recent
months, including Peter McMURRAY, and our most senior members, Bryan
& Edna KELAHER. At time of writing, Edna KELAHER is still in John
Flynn Hospital, slowly recovering, and currently Ken TANDY is in the
Gold Coast University Hospital and we wish him a speedy recovery.
Ken took ill shortly after he performed the laying of the Branch
wreath at our RSL Club on ANZAC day.
A number of our members achieve Veteran Status this year and will
be presented with their certificates at a meeting closest to their
birthdays. See photos of two recent presentations.
The guest speaker at our June meeting will be Bruce GRAYDON
(former – NSW Police) who will be speaking to us about the
organisation 'Blue Hope' of which Bruce is associated, on the
subject of Police suffering from PTSD and the problems associated
with this illness. No doubt Bruce will be speaking to other Branches
in the future and we are looking forward to his presentation.
