Merry Christmas from the ANARE Club President and National Council

As Christmas Eve closes upon us my Best Wishes to all Members and Families of the ANARE Club for a joyous and Festive Christmas. 

As we emerged from the fog of COVID our family of Club Members has increased and we achieved amazing outcomes for the year. Especially recognising ours & AAD respective 70th & 75th Anniversary’s. 

Enjoy this time together and our thoughts are with the current generation of Expeditioners. 

For those returning to loved ones after a year, or so apart, and to those replacing them and about to embark on their journey for the new year. 

It is an exciting time for the AAD with so many advancements technologically, scientifically, and logistically in their program. 

As a Club we stand in awe of this & we continue to offer our support to future generations.

Best wishes from your Council and State Representatives for a safe, happy and blessed Christmas.
