Gentlemen & Ladies,
There is no more for us to plan and its now a simple
matter of counting the attendance figures and attempting to coerce
sufficient numbers to make it a bumper re-union (dont worry, the
pun is unintentional).
Therefore, this newsletter is the final reminder for
YOU to forward your choices of menu and full payment for the re-union
function. You have until: 28th February in which to respond. For your
convenience, a menu and response slip is enclosed.
The voluntary committee have negotiated the function
price based on an estimated attendance of approximately 100 persons.
If we fail to produce that number, then the Entry Fund will have to be
used to fund any excess applied.
We, Glyn Bolderson; Tony & Hilary Bradley; Cliff
& Ann-Marie Mitchell; Roger & Beryl Sheppard; John &
Stephanie Cormack; Terry & Avril McCrum; Tony & Denise Dapre;
Jeff & Marilyne Bullock; Roger & Pam Miller; Bill &

Mike Crooks; Rob & Una Johnson; John & Gayle Othen; Grahame
& Sandra Catherall; and me, Alf Banyard; request and look forward
to YOUR company for the re-union dinner.
Whereas we understand that some people from overseas
intend to attend, we do need your response please.
Please, therefore, make your commitment to attending
by making your choice of main and sweet courses on the appropriate
docket and return as soon as you can together with the full amount of

A Quote from 'Tony Dapre (for full passage see the
"Since the 1993 reunion it was amazing to find
that there were six of us in Australia and one in New Zealand. We
started having Antipodean reunions after and this has added very much
to a social life built on fond memories." "In September this
year I lost one of my younger twin sisters. This has brought home in a
dramatic way my own mortality and the need to enjoy every moment. To
those lads, or their wives who have experienced any similar loss I can
now empathise so lets get together for this one and have a really good

We have a request from Andy Dawson if he could share

will forward names & details to Andy via e-mail. Thanks.
