It is with sadness that we note the passing of an Original Member of
the RPA South Coast branch.
Desmond Kendrick Hennessy, attended South Coast Branch meetings and
outings since its inaugration on 20th November 1990.
We pass on our sincere condolences to his wife Shirley and all
The South Coast Branch held its AGM in Nowra on 16 June which saw
Bob 'Willo' Williamson elected as Chairman, Paul 'Rutto' Rutledge
elected as Vice Chairman, John 'Davy' Crockett elected as
Secretary/Treasurer and Robyn Eggins elected as Welfare Officer.
In September South Coast Branch Members held a 'social day' at the
Two Figs Winery, Shoalhaven Heads where many different varieties of
wine were sampled while those present enjoyed a platter of local
produce for lunch. A great day out was had by all.
A meeting in October was held at the Batemans Bay Soldiers Club to
enable members from the 'far' south coast to attend. It was great to
see Ian & Jan Gordon together with David & Jenny Dawson attend as
they normally drive to the Shoalhaven for meetings and functions. On
the way back Bob & Gail Williamson and John Crockett stopped at the
East Lynne Garage where they sampled the 'best' apple pie on the
Two Figs Winery social outing

A Merry Christmas to all Members, Friends and families.
