Royal Flying Doctor celebrates 90th Birthday


President Tony presenting a cheque to John Lynch

One of Australia’s icons, the Royal Flying Doctor Service was the subject of our guest speaker at our meeting on June 5.

The speaker was the CEO of the service, John Lynch. He spoke passionately of how the lives of people living in remote areas has been transformed since the introduction of this health service ninety years ago.

From humble beginnings the RFDS has expanded to cover all of Australia, with its fleet of aircraft the third largest in the country.

At the conclusion of his talk President Tony presented John with a cheque in acknowledgement of the valued role this service plays.
