Celebrating 40 years of friendship

40 Years of Friends

40 years ago, a group of very forward looking visionaries in Melbourne, decided that they could affect positive change for our community here in Victoria.

Their crazy idea was to go purchase a 5 acre (20,000 sqm) piece of land in Wantirna to build a chinese school and a clubhouse for the new chinese immigrants coming into Victoria.

None of them were rich enough to do it by themselves, but as a group, pitching in their own time and resources, they made the impossible, POSSIBLE.

But the best part of their achievement was that in working together, they became great FRIENDS.

Come celebrate the Friendships made at the CAV

For Good
I’ve heard it said
That people come into our lives
For a reason
Bringing something we must learn
And we are led to those
Who help us most to grow if we let them
And we help them in return
Well, I don’t know if I believe that’s true
But I know I’m who I am today
Because I knew you
Lyrics from the musical “Wicked”

Remember those special days?

All those meetings. Endless paperwork and practice. The aching feet. But it really was the coffee breaks, the shared experiences, those lunches or dinners that brought us closer together. As friends and as a community.

There are so many people that we have worked and played together with, that we haven’t seen in a long while. Wouldn’t it be great to catch up with them again?

Why not get a table together and relive those happy days?  Be it a BDG class, a golf group, a CAV sub group committee or an EXCO team. Why wait? We are not getting any younger!
