Veterans' Health Week Event - 18 October 2021

We are pleased to announce a Veterans Wellbeing Workshop in partnership with the Plympton Veterans Centre which is a centre for voluntary Qualified Military Advocates offering advocacy services to veterans and their families free of charge.

We have used this year’s DVA theme of "Get Moving" to focus on:
  1. Get moving on Veteran Advocacy
  2. Get moving on Veteran Aged Care
  3. Get moving on Veteran Planning
The Workshop will increase participants' awareness of the pathways of support and assistance that are available when considering a claim or service from DVA, moving into an aged care facility, or considering a will, power of attorney, or an advanced care directive.

Veterans, service members, their families, and RSL affiliates are invited to attend.

The workshop will be presented by Nathan Klinge, the CEO of RSL CareSA, Tich, and Bill Hignett and a light lunch will be provided. Further details are:

When:    12:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Where:   RSL Tanunda "Hut" in the Tanunda Recreation Park, 18 Bilyara Road,
              Tanunda

 The RSL - A Time to Celebrate

Emu Tree's Christian Teusner is holding a number of displays across the state, one of which is a SALA event at Ayres House, Adelaide from 28 August until 5 September on Saturdays and Sundays between 10 am and 3 pm.

The displays are an extensive photographic exhibition featuring images submitted by veterans and their families. 

There are also hundreds of hours of oral histories submitted by veterans and war widows you can listen to using headphones provided at the display sites or here where they are stored as podcasts.

These images and recorded histories were captured by Christian last year and this year as a result of "Saluting their Service" grants provided to our sub-branch by the Department of Veteran's Affairs.

Christian has done an excellent job capturing historical media that will be preserved in Australia's Military Archives for future generations.

Further information about Christian's displays schedule will be posted here in the near future.
