The Violet Town RSL Sub Branch is a small and very active group.
We meet each month on the second Friday at 14:00 hours at the Violet Town RSL meeting room in the Community Complex. The President has a social monthly luncheon with members on the last Friday of each month.
Our organisation is dedicated to honouring those who have served our nation through military service and we believe that the care of veterans and their dependants remains our core role.
