51st Birthday Celebrations for the Ringwood War Widows’ Association

By May 17, 2010May 30th, 2010No Comments

The War Widows’ Association of the Ringwood Branch of the RSL was formed in 1949 to support war widows.  The organisation meets regularly at the Ringwood RSL and also supports a range of community organisations.

This afternoon I attended the birthday celebrations at a luncheon held at the Ringwood RSL.  The birthday provided an opportunity to reflect on the past 51 years and the ongoing support that is offered to members of the organisation.  The festivities included a band and a birthday cake, with many of the members participating in singing or dancing.

The Ringwood RSL supports a range of community based organisations and has provided ongoing assistance to the Ringwood War Widows’ Association.
