Since the Lakemba RSL Sub-Branch Club was formed in 1940, it has been providing support to ex-servicemen and women of the Lakemba area, and now they are calling up for new members to sign up.
“The Lakemba Club actually has two different branches – the Lakemba RSL Sub-Branch and the Lakemba Services Social Club. The difference between them is that the Sub-Branch is for ex-members of the Australian Defence Forces and accepts members from Allied Forces while membership to the Social Club is open to anyone wanting to join up,” said Ann Garland, President of Lakemba RSL Sub-Branch.
The sub-branch meets every second month to discuss any updates or changes to government policies that affect veterans and exchange information that is useful for ex-service personnel needing help.
It currently has approximately 50 members who meet regularly for those meetings, commemorative gatherings including ANZAC Day services, ANZAC Dinner and Remembrance Day services as well as social catch ups. The Sub-Branch is encouraging new members to sign up to keep abreast with the latest veteran news as well as have a place to connect with other ex-service personnel.
If you have previously served and would like to join the Lakemba RSL Sub-Branch Club, please contact Lakemba Reception on 9751 5888.
The Lakemba Club will also be commemorating the upcoming ANZAC Day with a range of events. Please see below for more details.
