Highest member numbers for RSL
AT THE annual meeting of the Laidley RSL Sub-branch, president Mike Nowlan reflected on a year he described as “full of activity and full of satisfaction”.
Mr Nowlan said sub-branch membership had now reached 86, which he said was the highest it had ever been.
“The big news from last year has been gaining a DVA grant of $50,000 to purchase a printer and to aircondition our rooms,” he said.
Mr Nowlan welcomed two new members to the executive committee, secretary Lindy Barton and assistant secretary Kaelene Matts.
Donations were made to each of the three cadet units and to Legacy.
Local State MP Ian Rickuss congratulated Mr Nowlan, saying he was pleased to see the sub-branch progressing so well.
Lockyer Valley Regional Mayor Steve Jones thanked the members for their involvement in several projects.
“Your professionalism is evident, and council values its relationship with the Laidley RSL,” he said.
Cr Jones confirmed the proposed move of the sub-branch headquarters to premises at the Laidley Recreation Reserve was continuing despite disruptions caused by the recent floods.
