Re: Swiss ANZAC Day

Anyone going from the Fribourg area?

I will most likely go to the memorial service, but a little intimidated to go to the BBQ by myself! However, the lure of winning the raffle prize makes it tempting...

Anyone else in my predicament and want to meet up??

Re: Swiss ANZAC Day

Sorry will miss it but would be great to go.

Is the raffle prize a meat tray? Because that's worth gold in Switzerland
