Special Announcement: Exclusive Auction Item
We’re thrilled to announce a special addition to our upcoming combined Ladies/Axemen’s luncheon on August 17th, and it’s sure to be a highlight of the event!

Thanks to the efforts of our local MP for Waite, Catherine Hutchesson, we have secured a Gather Round Footy signed by none other than our very own popular Premier, Mr. Peter Malinauskas! This unique item is a testament to the community spirit and support we receive from our leaders.

The excitement doesn’t stop there! Our Premier will be gracing us with his presence as our Special Guest Speaker  (lunch date tbc), adding an extra layer of significance to this occasion. We extend our sincere appreciation to Brett Brodie for arranging this special appearance (lunch date tbc).

Now, here’s where you come in. If you’re unable to attend the luncheon on the 17th but would still like a chance to bid on this remarkable item, don’t worry! Simply fill out the Auction form available on your table and present it to one of our committee members.

Luncheon Sponsor and Volunteers Thanks:
We extend our heartfelt gratitude to Kris and Belinda Winchester for their continued support and dedication to  our luncheons. Their salads and vegetables add a vibrant touch to our meals, and we are truly grateful for their generosity.

We encourage all our members to consider Spring Fresh Salads for their catering needs. Whether you’re hosting an event or simply looking to elevate your meals at home, Kris and Belinda have you covered.

Their offerings not only save you time but also ensure that you’re enjoying the finest, freshest ingredients.
For more information or to place an order, visit Spring Fresh Salads’ website. Let’s show our support for this wonderful local business that continually enhances our dining experiences.

We want to extend a heartfelt thank you to two special volunteers who have stepped up to lend a hand this season.

First and foremost, a big round of applause for Eric Roberts, who has generously volunteered his time to help serve meals. We are incredibly grateful for Eric’s commitment to supporting our lunches and ensuring everyone is well taken care of.

Additionally, we want to extend our gratitude to Gyprock for his support in organizing another helper for the kitchen. Having an extra set of hands ensures that our kitchen operations run smoothly, allowing us to provide delicious meals and hospitality to all our guests.

Let’s not forget our Axemen committee members. Your commitment to our organization and your unwavering passion for our community shines through in everything you do. From coordinating logistics to ensuring every detail is just right, your efforts do not go unnoticed.
