Our Golf Day was a huge success.  A special thank you for Barry/John/Don/David and Colleen, but really everyone who helped on the day and leading up to the day.   It was a great fun day, with all the interesting things happening around us, a number plate quiz, beer getting lost, Asahi, to other interesting things found on the course.
Barry gave us an overview of an excellent result from the day.  T/O total $208,805.    The raffle was won by Bill Birch, for the trip to Queensland, the Patron of Dementia, so well deserved.
