RETIRED MEMBERS LUNCH
Each year, LGMA Queensland hosts a lunch for our retired members of local government, usually in November or December in Brisbane.
The Annual Retired Members Christmas Lunch was held in November with a great turn out once again. Hotel Jen hosted the event this year with the bon-bons and lolly bar a real hit. This event continues to be a great opportunity for our retired members to get together, share stories and reminisce on the ‘good old days’.
This year we recognised our very own Dalby Dan as he is stepping down from his long-running column (which started way back in the early 90’s!) and acknowledged his years of service with a small gift.
As always, we were happy to see many partners attend and take the opportunity to catch up with long time friends. This year we went through the archives and created a brochure that included photos from The Journal going all the way back to the 1960’s. We thoroughly enjoyed seeing the eyes light up when attendees saw themselves in those photos. Each attendee received a copy of the brochure to take home along with an LGMA fedora hat.
It was a very enjoyable occasion for all who attended and is a lovely way to keep in touch and reminisce on years gone by. We hope to see you all at the next lunch scheduled for 23 November 2018.
