RSL: Future clearer Moruya meeting told

AFTER many months in a sort of limbo the way ahead for the State RSL is becoming clearer a meeting of Moruya Sub-branch trustees was told on Tuesday afternoon. “Whether we like it or not there is going to be change,” deputy president Kevin Setter said. Mr Setter discussed with the trustees present a proposed new constitution that to some extent would alter the way the RSL has been carrying out some of its affairs…”there will be repercussions if we don’t do the right thing”, he warned. The changes result from investigations that began in 2016 relating to concerns that charitable funds had been allegedly misused at State level. As a result of the legal concerns sales of Memorial Day poppies and Anzac day badges were halted last year. On Tuesday Mr Setter said it was now hoped that it would be possible to offer poppies for sale this year in association with November 11 and Anzac day fund-raising would be back to normal next year. The meeting also discussed ways and means of attracting new members (Moruya Sub-branch has about 70 members) and encouraging current members to attend monthly meetings. Some ideas will probably be further discussed at the monthly meeting on July 17th.
