In General Business the following motions were carried:

1.That the MHA donate $500 to the MCCV

2.That the MHA donate $250 towards sponsorship of Frank Scicluna’s forthcoming book, “Malta, Nurse of the Mediterranean”

Joseph Borg then invited us to a spit roast at his place on Sunday 14 December.  The cost will be around $35 to $40 with a special price of $10 to financial members. 

We were reminded about the MCCV Malta Republic 40th Anniversary Dinner Dance at the Maltese Community Centre, 6 pm to 11 pm on Saturday 13 December; Music Mario Sammut; $30 a head.  Victor Borg has recently been elected President of the MCCV.

After some discussion it was agreed that we continue to have monthly lectures on the third Tuesday, rather than every second month or weekends.

Charles Gatt expressed interested about the many Maltese groups in Melbourne and was directed to Under One Umbrella for starters.

Meeting closed 8.30 pm


After the meeting two new members joined, Lena Portelli and Joseph Bonett.  I am sure you will make them feel welcome, in true Maltese fashion.


Warmest Regards for the Festive Season,

Charles Gatt

(MHA Secretary)
