The Queen's letter and Patrick

The combined efforts by members of our club and Patrick's family resulted in a memorable birthday party.
150 persons were booked to attend and the clubroom was filled to capacity.
Birthday greetings included congratulations and best wishes from The Queen (shown above), the Governor General of Australia, our Prime Minister and Ministers for Defence and Veteran's Affairs. The local State Member (The Hon. Rachel Sanderson MP)
and the Mayor of the City of Prospect (David O'Loughlin) attended Patrick's party in person.
All attending had a wonderful time (Patrick admitted to being somewhat 'worn-out' towards the end of the party).
