Upcoming Meetings:

December 11th, 2020

The Society's Christmas meeting is scheduled to be held on Friday, 11th of December at Living Choice, 123 Fisher Street, Fullarton at 11:30 pm for a 12:00 pm start.

Our guest speaker is Associate Professor Susan Neuhaus, who will speak about a story from the WWI Western front. The presentation will be in the Auditorium (left rear of building), followed by lunch at Damien's restaurant (own cost) for those who wish to eat there. Please order and pay for your meal at the counter on the right before entering the Auditorium.

We are limited to 42 people for the Auditorium, and have told Damien's we expect no more than 40 people for lunch. So far, 15 people have indicated they will attend, which means we can accommodate another 27 people: feel free to invite friends. Please contact the Secretary (Joy) by the 4th of December to book a place if you wish to attend. Those who have already registered only need to reply if they are not planning to eat at Damien's.

A/Prof. Susan Neuhaus - "A Stretcher on the Somme ... a South Australian Story"
