32 YEAR MEMORIAL SERVICE

The parents of Dana are organising a memorial service for Dana at the Woronora Cemetery on Friday 19 July 2019 at 10.30 am.

They are calling on classmates from 219 (June 86) and workmates from Waverley who might be available, to join family and colleagues to remember this great young copper and mate, taken from us too early.

For unknown reasons, this Memorial Service has been cancelled.
