Widows Group

2018 Executive Committee

The Forestville RSL sub-Branch Widows Group was formed in 1982 to assist the widows and families of our Australian Defence Forces.  Over the years we have had 14 devoted Presidents, all working to help when and where needed.  We are celebrating our 36th year in July 2018.  Over the years we have included non-forces widows.

We meet monthly on the 3rd Monday at 11am for 11.30am (except January).  After General Business, we have a lunch and, where arranged, we have guest speakers, entertainers, BBQs etc.  Our annual Birthday and Christmas Luncheons, and our annual special luncheon given by the sub-Branch, are enjoyed by all.  Many long friendships have developed over the years from our monthly get-togethers.
