Both branches of the Vietnam Veterans Federation at Nerang were again blessed to host the group of Legacy Ladies from Brisbane Southeast Group, based at Coorparoo RSL. for their Christmas Lunch, held in the kitchen of the Men’s Shed. Sadly, the numbers of attendees are in decline, as age and health issues catch up with them, but that did not detract from another great experience for both the ladies and the hosts.

The chartered bus, ably driven by Bill, arrived just before 12 noon, and tea and coffee were soon served to the happily chatting group, before getting down to the serious business of the lunch itself. Our long-serving and faithful caterer, Clancy, put on a delicious meal, complete with ham, turkey, and all the trimmings, followed by delightful sweets, all accompanied by much banter and laughter.

Peter Cameron then Drew the ubiquitous raffle, all above board of course! and everyone received a prize along with good humour. After what seemed like no time, it was time to board the bus and head back to Coorparoo and their various homes, having had a marvelous gathering and good food.

We look forward to hosting the Legacy Ladies again next year, should that prove possible.
