There will not be a Lunch & Chat meeting in July as such, instead we will be having a ‘Christmas in July’ function, at the Mitcham Hotel, organised by Eric Morris and his Committee.
The AUGUST Lunch ‘n’ Chat is scheduled as follows:
Where: Sofia’s Restaurant, 99 Maroondah High, Croydon. (Look for the Big ‘M’ McDonald’s sign).
When: Wednesday 24th August
Time: 12.00 pm
Sophia’s is a licensed restaurant. It will be table service and they have agreed to split the bill. At the end of the
meal, you will just have to tell them what you ordered. If you would like to join us for Lunch & Chat in August,
please contact Fran before the event on 0407 872 745. We look forward to seeing you there.

Lunch ‘n chat is open to all members to come together on the 4th Wednesday of each month for some social chit chat over a casual lunch.  Venues are usually within a short distance from Ringwood, and are chosen more often than not by recommendation from members.
