We would like to thank those lucky members in WA who have attended the previous functions which have been organised to celebrate ANA’s 100 years and for your support. We hope you will continue this generosity by attending the Gala dinner.
To those from the east and overseas, thank you for your best wishes, memories and memorabilia. Hopefully we will be able to capture your sentiments on the night.
It has been a privilege to have this opportunity to pay tribute to those who have gone before us and we hope we do you justice in the future.

Thank you,
ANARC Centenary Sub Committee
