70th Year Heard Island Commemoration

ANARE Club Inc

Heard Island

Invitation from Dr Joe Johnson, President, ANARE Club to attend the Commemorative Luncheon on the Occasion of the 70th Anniversary of the Establishment of the first ANARE base at Heard Island, December 1947.

On behalf of the National Council of the ANARE Club, I extend a warm invitation to all Club Members, past expeditioners, family and friends to attend the above event to be held in Melbourne at the Bayview Eden, 6 Queens Road, Melbourne, 3004, on Wednesday 13 December 2017 from 11.30am for 12 noon to 4.00pm.

We anticipate that up to 10 former expeditioners from the 1951 to 1954 Heard Island Expeditions will be able to join the Club for this historic gathering, as well as others involved in later expeditions to the Island.

The Council regards this gathering of great importance in the history of the Club, as it not only celebrates a very significant anniversary in relation to our first ANARE Station , but also the birth of ANARE and the celebration of the commencement of the activity which binds us all together - the commencement of Australia's post-war Antarctic endeavour.

A special Luncheon and Commemorative program is being organized at:
    $55 per person for ANARE Club members, and
    $60 per person for non-members
