Delegates from over 50 Sub- Branches attended when RSL WA held their 103 State Congress on the 15th June at the Crown Towers. This was a great year for the Northam RSL Sub-Branch, picking up the Colonel Collett Trophy – All round performance.
This is a competition between Country Sub-Branches with more than 25 members. Points are scored for welfare and advocacy access, commemoration activities, being involved with youth groups, being able to tell our story through social media, web pages or printed press, increasing membership and the all important financial paperwork is completed on time. These all add up to show the Sub-Branch is active, well-managed and involved with the community.
This is a great honour and will be appreciated by the members in the Sub-Branch. “A lot of hard work had been put into winning the trophy”, Mick Prytulak said, “and also I would like to thank the town of Northam for always supporting the Northam RSL Sub Branch and Veterans in their community. The Remembrance Day weekend would have been the highlight for the past year. This trophy was just the icing on the cake.”
