The Yass branch of the Australian Red Cross will celebrate its Centenary Dinner this Saturday, August 9. To promote this major milestone for such a valued organisation, Joy Cavenagh (pictured) visited Yassfm’s – ‘Yes Yass it’s Saturday’ program last Saturday and put Red Cross on the airwaves.
The historical significance for Yass is that the Yass branch was inaugurated on August 17 1914, just four days after the Australian Red Cross was registered, making it the third oldest branch after Sydney and Newcastle.
Also worthy of mention is ‘Telecross’ – a Red Cross service for persons suddenly in need and if necessary, on a daily checklist.
The Centenary Dinner for this Saturday is 6.30 for a 7pm start at the Yass Soldiers Club, tickets available at Comur House. The guest speaker for the night is captain Bede Tongs OAM MM. To reserve a place at the Centenary Dinner phone Joy on 6226 6799 or Vicki on 6227 1226.
