Celebration of Dick Den Brinker's life

Fellow Members and Friends of the Port Club

Our President, John Webster, has drawn attention to a Notice in yesterday's Obituary Notices in the Sydney Morning Herald, which sets out the details of a Function to 'Celebrate the Life of Dick Den Brinker, our much loved and respected former Member and immediate Past President.  Dick, as you all now know, lost his last battle and 'crossed the bar' on Sunday, 14th August 2011, in Holland.  His Funeral was held in The Netherlands last Friday, 19th August 2011.

The 'Celebration of Life' Function is to be held on Friday, 2nd September 2011 at The Beach Club, 1058 Pittwater Road, Collaroy, from 1.00pm.  We hope that most, if not all, Members and Friends of the Port Club, will be able to attend as a mark of respect to Dick and to his Australian Family.

For those of you not driving, Collaroy can be reached from the City by Government Bus (Route No. L88) which departs from Carrington Street (Wynyard) (Stand C) at 11.55 am, arriving at Collaroy at 12.38pm, ie, just over one hour.  NOTE:  These are pre-paid fare buses only.  You must pre-purchase a ticket.  There is a ticket office near Wynyard Station in Carrington Street.

Of course, there will be no normal Port Club Lunch/Meeting on the day of the 'Celebration' (Friday, 2nd September).  The Club will meet for its normal Lunches on both Friday, 26th August and on Friday 9th September 2011.

People who are proposing to attend the Celebratory Function please advise me either by email at or by phone [ 0409 905 763 ] or 02 9948 5678.

Kindest regards

Peter Yates, Secretary
