DROP IN CENTRE – HOPPERS CROSSING
Open every Wednesday (usually closed from around 15 Dec to 1 Feb annually and Public Holidays) from 10 till 1pm, the Drop In Centre provides a BBQ/Sausage Sizzle style lunch, including hot and cold beverages, at Central Park Community Centre, Lonsdale Circuit, Hoppers Crossing.

 

This venue provides somewhere to meet with fellow ex-service or serving personnel and their partners (not restricted to Vietnam veterans) where you can enjoy something to eat and drink while meeting, talking etc with others from a similar background. While the various conflicts we have endured vary, the fact that we are all ex-service or serving members remains, so come along and enjoy the comradery. Cost is a small donation, which funds the Drop In Centre.

WERRIBEE RSL
Werribee RSL, Kelly Park, Synnot St. Werribee, put on a subsidised luncheon at 11.30 on the last Friday of each month (excluding January and December). However this does vary if it falls on Public Holidays or conflicts with other events at the club, it can be brought forward or possibly cancelled. Any variations are notified to our membership via emails or in our Newsletter if time permits. If unsure phone the club on 03 9741 5525.


The luncheon is for ex-service personnel and their partners, and as many of our members are in this category and also members of Werribee RSL, we are invited to attend. Please note that this is not the Vietnam Veterans Association’s luncheon, it is the Werribee RSL’s luncheon for those that meet the criteria.
A raffle is run during the event, profits of which feed back into the Sub-Branch Welfare Account.

HOPPERS CLUB, HOPPERS CROSSING
The Hoppers Club, 180-200 Pannam Drive, Hoppers Crossing, is where our Sub-Branch was started, so is our “ancestral home”.

 

A number of our members are also members of the Hoppers Club, and we are a “Sub-Club” of the Hoppers Club. The Hoppers Club runs a part raffle on Thursday nights from 6pm with the draw commencing at 7pm and profits are fed back to the various “Sub-Clubs” who are rostered to run the raffle. While we have 6 nights during 2018 (22/2, 19/4, 14/6, 2/8, 29/9 and 15/11), both dates and number of nights will vary from year to year. These raffles represent about $1800 plus per annum for our Welfare Fund which is in turn used for our membership.

 

If you would like to help on our raffle nights, please let the secretary know of your availability. We generally have a few members who turn up and dine in the Club’s bistro. If you are not a current member of the Hoppers Club, we encourage you to join, support the Club, and in turn support the VVAA Sub-Branch.
