Avatar’s Abode Anniversary 2018

Tuesday 5 June to Monday 11 June 2018

For the 60th Anniversary celebration of Baba’s 1958 visit, the Anniversary Committee again will welcome suggestions and proposals from near and far.

The first Planning Meeting of the Avatar’s Abode Anniversary Committee will be held Tuesday 25 July 2017 at 5.30 p.m. in the Reception Centre, Avatar’s Abode. Your input is welcome by email or by attendance.

This will be the 60th celebration and because of this milestone it will be commemorated from Tuesday 5 June to Monday 11 June (public holiday in all states except QLD & WA).

The Anniversary Committee is a subcommittee of the Avatar’s Abode Trust and has a lot of autonomy and many decisions are to be made.

All are very welcome to attend and as always many workers are needed. A lot of the required planning work does not require attendance at meetings. New attendees are especially welcome, as this brings new ideas.

If you cannot attend our first meeting, please advise if you would like to receive copies of minutes, or dates of future meetings. Also, please advise if you are willing to work behind the scenes.

Our confirmed guests next year are Peter and Debbie Nordeen. We have an indication that many people will be attending from the USA. We will have more information on other guests and attendees at a later date.

For this anniversary we are planning to have some planning meetings during the day on weekends. All meetings finish at the scheduled time. Minutes of meetings will be available on the desk in the Reception Centre.


Bernard Bruford and Denis Carmody
Co-chairs of the Anniversary Committee
