2006 Australia Day Wrap-Up

 

(Milwaukee, WI) - The three events we held in Milwaukee for Australia Day 2006 brought out a great mixture of the old, the new, the young, the old, the adopted and those that reappeared from the past.

Thursday night, twenty of us partied to Kevin Brown's band, Man Down, at Paulie's Pub in New Berlin. The "Aussie Aussie Aussie, Oi Oi Oi's" were loud, strong and something to be proud of.  Thanks for coming out.  Great to see Val and Paul Markham at an event.  They have been here for several years and it was there first Aussie Event.

Saturday afternoon was the family party at Becca and Scott Saunder's home in Eagle.  I only met Becca back in December and she willingly put her hand up to host the party.  Brave girl.  She is even more brave as she has suggested a BBQ at her place in the summer.  The kids played pass the parcel, there was loads of Aussie food including lamingtons, iced vovo's, cheezels, vegemite pinwheels, tim tams, minties, violets crumbles and so much more.  The sausage rolls and party pies from the Aussie Baker in Atlanta were a hit.  Great to see the McMurray family back at an event and thanks to Marianne and John Morton for coming.  They have just moved here.

Sunday no less than sixty of us gathered at the Bradley Center to cheer Andrew Bogut on with the Milwaukee Bucks.  We were allowed early entry to meet Andrew and watch warm-ups from up close and personal. We waved the Aussie Flags and had a great day out.  The Bucks won in a very tight and exciting finish.

Anzac Day will be either Sat the 22nd or Sun the 23rd of April.  Please keep both those dates open. We hope to have some Two Up, maybe a little cricket and lots of good Aussie wine that day.
