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, café nearby, just 2 doors down from our meeting place (SMSA) at 276 Pitt Street, called The Walrus Cafe. There are some vegie options on their menu, as well as a delicious all day breakfast, mouthwatering sandwiches, cakes, deserts and great Coffee and Tea, the usual inexpensive and humble café fare. Also they are willing to hold a booking for about 8 people from 12.30 on a Saturday for us.

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