Each year, the Club has a Christmas Luncheon in December instead of our normal meeting for that month.
The Luncheon for Christmas 2016 was held at the St Georges Restaurant at Melbourne Polytechnic in Preston. Around 60 members and guests enjoyed convivial company and good food and service. This year we were entertained by two young people (grandchildren of members) with keyboard, voice and harmonica.

As in past years, members and guests were invited to provide some Christmas cheer to others, rather than giving gifts to each other. Generous cash contributions were made to our ‘Kris Kringle for the Asylum Seekers’.
In 2017, the Club returned to St Georges Restaurant at Melbourne Polytechnic for the Christmas Lunch in December. On this occasion, ‘Kris Kringle’ contributions were collected to benefit the work of Foodbank Victoria. For further information, please click here.

The 2018 Christmas Luncheon was held at Riverside Events, at the Riverside Golf Club, , Ascot Vale. Around 45 members and guests enjoyed each other’s company in this final function for 2018. ‘Kris Kingle’ contributions were collected to benefit the work of Angel Flight (click here) and Mercy Ships (click here).
