The Anglo-Indian Australasian Association of Victoria


We have come to the end of 2019. Difficult to believe! Time does fly when you’re busy and having fun! Now it’s time to recount with pride, elation and satisfaction, all the experiences of the last TWELVE months of the year. Your company and co-operative spirit is most appreciated.

A big thank you to all the committee members and volunteers for helping at all our functions and trips during 2019. Please read the program as we would like everyone to attend and enjoy the functions.  A great deal of effort and time is involved in organising events so please show your community spirit, enthusiasm and support by coming along !

The committee and the members of the Association would like to offer their sincere sympathies to all the family members who have lost their beloved ones in 2019.

In July 2019 the Association purchased a three bedroom holiday house in Lakes Entrance. The holiday house has three bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, dining room, lounge, kitchen, laundry, garage for 2 cars and will be available in September 2020 to rent by our members for a short stay; minimum seven days rental. The holiday house can sleep 6 people. Lakes Entrance is a beautiful holiday place not far from Melbourne; V-Line has a service three times a day to Lakes Entrance and is close to the shops.

The Association will be celebrating it’s Golden Jubilee – 50 years of service in 2021. We are planning to organise the below functions below:

- May Ball at the Palladium discount for life and yearly member.

 - Charter a Cruise – Ship for a 7 night cruise for members, and Various other trips and social functions.

The 6 unit project at St Alban's is still with various builders and we are awaiting a quote to construct by 2020. It should be completed if we get the right builder and price.

In conclusion, to all the Committee members, members, non-members and well-wishers while being ever-grateful for your support, co-operation and team effort extended through the years, I take this opportunity to also make each of us aware of the reality, that we NEED younger members to keep the “ANGLO-INDIAN SPIRIT” alive,  well into the future. Do encourage your children and grandchildren to join us in this endeavour!  On behalf of the committee, I would like to wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!Type your paragraph here.
