President Update – 17 April 2020

Dear Members,

As you may know, earlier today Don Rowe’s sentence was handed down at the Sydney Downing Centre. Mr Rowe was fined $2000 and placed on a two-year community corrections order.

This final sentencing from the court closes the chapter on this drawn out process and a difficult time for RSL NSW. However, as I have previously stated, we have moved on from these events, with measures in place that protect against these mistakes ever being repeated.

Together, the League across New South Wales, and indeed the nation, prepares for a very different ANZAC Day this year. Our national campaign helps unite the Australian public in a collective will to commemorate and honour our brave servicemen and women, both past and present.

Our ongoing welfare work supports veterans and their families in local communities across the country. We are resolute in our commitment to veteran welfare, and the ongoing work to finalise the strategic plan will move RSL NSW forward with a focus on our mission of respecting, supporting and remembering our veterans and their families.

 

Yours,

 

Ray James

Acting State President
