INVITATION: Dinner with surviving Kokoda veterans

Our annual ‘Salute to the 39th Dinner’ will be held in Parliament House, Melbourne on Friday, 18th March 2016.

The dinner will be hosted by Victorian MP, Gary Blackwood, and each table will be hosted by a surviving Kokoda veteran.

Over the past 10 years many of our 39th veterans have passed and their numbers are dwindling. However this is the most important event on their calendar as they enjoy the company of trekkers who can relate to their service and sacrifice.  Our ‘salure dinners’ are historic occasions and as time steals the survivors from our midst we will look back upon them as giants of their era and will be honoured to have dined in their company.

The cost of the dinner is $165 per person (3 course meal, beer and wine) in the historic Queens Hall of the Victorian Parliament.

You can pay by using our ‘Donation’ page at https://www.networkkokoda.org/donate/ or by making a cheque payable to the ‘Kokoda Education Fund’ and posting it to:

Gary Blackwood MP
3/24 Mason Street,
Warragul  Vic 3820

Gary’s contact number is 03 5623 1960 or email at gary.blackwood@parliament.vic.gov.au

Proceeds for the evening will be directed to the education of village students along the Kokoda Trail.
