RSL meet­ing

Geraldton Guardian - - NEWS -

Not very of­ten in its 100-year his­tory, has the Re­turned and Ser­vices League of WA held a board meet­ing out­side of Perth — but Ger­ald­ton had the hon­our of host­ing it this week.

RSLWA pres­i­dent Peter Aspinall and chief ex­ec­u­tive John McCourt were among those who at­tended the meet­ing, held at the City of Greater Ger­ald­ton ad­min­is­tra­tion cen­tre on Wed­nes­day.

On Tues­day, RSLWA staff held a fo­rum for Mid West RSL mem­bers at Bird­wood House.

Af­ter­wards, Mayor Shane Van Styn and Mr Aspinall laid a wreath at the HMAS Syd­ney II Memo­rial.

Ger­ald­ton City RSL Sub-Branch vice-pres­i­dent Ken Mor­ris said about half of RSL club mem­bers in WA lived in re­gional ar­eas.

“It was de­cided at a board meet­ing about eight months ago that we should reach out more to the re­gional ar­eas and hold board meet­ings in re­gional towns at least twice a year,” he said.

RSLWA held a board meet­ing in Kal­go­or­lie ear­lier this year.
