Why not meet up for a friendly visit before the next meeting?

Several members have taken to meeting up for lunch or a coffee before the Branch Meeting at a pleasant, family-run café nearby, just across Pitt Street, called Erin’s Kitchen. There are some vegie options on their menu, as well as the usual inexpensive and humble café fare.

This is not an official Branch event, just a casual, friendly gathering. We usually sit in the back where there is plenty of room, starting at about 1:00 pm, but feel free to come by any time after that.
