Remembrance Day 2017 Photos

Posted by: | Comments (0)


ADF Slouch Hat

Dear friends and members,

The photo gallery for Remembrance Day 2017 has been uploaded for your viewing pleasure. This year the ceremony was held at the MI RSL hall instead of the Alma Bay cenotaph. The intention was to bring focus back to the Memorial hall itself providing for a very dignified and well received ceremony. Due to the success the intention is to conduct Remembrance Day Ceremonies at the hall from now on. ANZAC Day ceremonies will still be conducted at Alma bay.

As always, please contact the RSL Office for copies of these images; larger high definition copies are available.

The Magnetic Island RSL wishes to that all of those who were involved and lent a hand in making it all happen so seamlessly. Thank you, also, to all those who attended this solemn commemoration with us.

Do you know of any past or current Kedron State High School students or staff (cleaners, groundsmen, office workers, teachers, principals etc), who have served as part of the Australian Defence Force during military campaigns? If so, the Kedron RSL Liaison Prefects need your help.

This year, the Kedron High RSL Liaison Prefects are working towards acquiring an Honour Board for Kedron State High School.

However, they need the community’s help to track down the names of Australian Defence Force servicemen and women from Kedron High who have served in military campaigns to ensure their names are included on the Honour Board.

If you know of any Kedron High staff or ex-students who should be added to the Honour Board, please contact Kedron State High School.

MIRSL Friday Markets and Sunday Roasts Closing for February 2017

To all our valued patrons and members.

Jenny Safe will be taking a well deserved rest from her sterling work of providing Sunday Roasts at the Magnetic Island RSL for the month of February.

Due to the annual downturn in market attendance the MIRSL will be closing its Friday Markets for the month of February 2017 as well.

HOWEVER, We plan to come back with due fanfare when we reopen in March. Watch this space and Lyn’s famous newsletters for the announcement!

Once again, the MIRSL wish to thank you, our valued patrons, for your amazing support!

New Telephone Number

Posted by: | Comments (0)

The RSL state have implemented a project in which it provides (and pays for ) internet, ADSL and landline services for all sub-branches in order to allow such sub-branches to put the monies it raises to better use than to pay for basic infrastructure.
The Magnetic Island RSL now has two telephone numbers; its original one which is paid for by the MI RSL and the new number which is paid for by RSL state. The old number will be phased out over the next few months – in the mean time both numbers will get you to the RSL Office.

Our new number is (07) 4758 1602.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to get in touch.

Kind regards
Anton Prinsloo
