National Vietnam Veterans Museum – Newhaven, Phillip Island

 

A proposal has been made to the committee that members may like to participate in a group visit to the National Vietnam Veterans Museum, Newhaven, Phillip Island. Details of the Museum and its displays can be found at their website https://www.vietnamvetmuseum.org/

 

Group bookings need to be arranged so that the museum can prepare for them. Any Guild members who would like to be part of a group visit need to contact the Guild Secretary by email – cupfire1@ozemail.com.au or telephone 9584 2907. If we have sufficient numbers to warrant a group visit it will be arranged, but even if we don’t we heartily recommend that the museum is well worth a visit.

Members are reminded that the Guild is taking orders for name badges for members. The cost is $15.00. The badge is depicted below

 

 

If you want one and haven’t ordered it please contact the Secretary by email – cupfire1@ozemail.com.au or telephone 9584 2907.
