Emerald Sub Branch Inc.
The Emerald RSL Sub Branch meets at the Emerald Bowls Club and offers a warm welcome to veterans in the local area and encourages visiting veterans and members or former members of the ADF to visit the Emerald Bowls Club and view the display cabinets which house memorabilia, as well as enjoy the facilities of the Bowls Club.
The Emerald Sub Branch is part of the Pioneer Fitzroy Highlands District of RSL Queensland.
Since it was formed, the Emerald RSL Sub Branch has been an integral part of the community. From our earliest years, we’ve been providing assistance and social connection to local ex-service men and women. In recent years, this Sub Branch has a very strong connection with the schools in the area with a huge effort being made to encourage our youth to keep the Anzac spirit alive for future generations. The Sub Branch has recently commenced engagement with local legatees to foster a good relationship and assist Legacy where possible. The Sub Branch is also very involved with commemorative and patriotic purposes which receive a huge community engagement.
The Emerald Sub Branch uses the services of Veteran Services Officers from Rockhampton for its welfare matters.
Sub Branch office bearers are generally available to assist with membership and Sub Branch enquiries.
Committee meetings are generally held on the second Monday of each second month at 7.30 pm at the Emerald Bowls Club. Please note that dates are occasionally changed to suit the availability of committee members.
