Rawson Review June July August 2024 Edition

President’s Report

Dear Members,

Can you believe winter is almost upon us? It's the perfect time to embrace the changing seasons and pay a visit to your Club. With the cooler weather rolling in, we've got an array of hot offerings to keep you entertained, from exceptional dining to live entertainment, all wrapped up with our signature five star service.

Last month marked a significant occasion as we honoured ANZAC Day, a date deeply ingrained in the fabric of our Club's culture. Thank you to our dedicated management team and staff for orchestrating and delivering an event of the highest quality. It was pleasing to see over 300 members of our community, including servicemen and women, gather for this year's Anzac Day Breakfast, a proud moment for us all.

45 on Rawson has launched a new menu and as we take a new direction in our catering, I am sure you will be impressed with the freshness, quality and value. Updated weekly specials are now available and we hope that you will be excited to try them all. Of course, members receive a substantial discount which is just another great benefit to being a Club member.

Speaking of membership, its that time of year again and I encourage you to renew so your many membership benefits can be continued. This year we have introduced a new membership category – Perpetual – which is not just outstanding value but also means you never have to renew again. That’s a proposition worth exploring!

Looking forward, we have a wonderful calendar of events planned including my personal favourites, great live entertainment with the Faulty Towers Dining Experience returning and acclaimed new show, Tom Burlinson’s Still Swingin’.

On behalf of The Board of Directors and our Management Team we hope you enjoy the activities and entertainment that has been planned for this quarter.

The Epping Club is a Finalist!

Your Club is proud to announce they are a finalist in the 2024 Clubs NSW ‘Clubs & Community Award’ recognising our contribution to the Karonga School with our ‘Green Light for Learning’ (traffic education) initiative. Congratulations
