AABC 49th Birthday Celebrations - Melbourne
Message from Gordon Lambie... Good afternoon everyone, I am thrilled with the response to the AABC 49th celebration proposal, a terrific base from which to begin planning for the 50th in 2018. Details are:
Where: Limerick Arms Hotel, Clarendon Street Sth Melbourne
When: 12:30 onwards, Sunday 6 August 2017
Carolin and I went along and had a meal there last week to check it out and will do the same for lunch on 6 Aug, love to see others do same. Food is good, atmosphere also good pub vibe. As advised in my initial email, there are no funds available to offset any costs for this event so everything will be pay as you go. If I’m able to swing a 49th birthday cake I may hit you up for a couple of dollars on the day. I will forward another update in a couple of weeks to ensure everyone is on net.
