It was a beautiful day for a walk as more than 200 supporters gathered on the banks of the Torrens Lake opposite the Torrens Parade Ground for the third Veterans’ Support Walk. With 20 sponsor logos emblazoned on their shirts they set off on the word of Graham Cornes.
Among the anxious dogs and striding mob was Liz Scarce, Ian Kelly and friends I had not seen for some considerable time. Peter Goers provided encouragement to the walkers and the sausage sizzle team from 9 RAR.
At the completion of the walk the raffle was drawn; the BIG TV going to John O’Shannesy with its smaller cousin won by Greg Hallam, the trek paramedic who had joined us from Stawell in Victoria. The Dulux voucher was won by another lucky punter who remains nameless.
After coffee and a yarn the group wandered over to the parade ground for the DVA Health Expo.
I extend my sincere thanks to you all for your support of the program.
