APDBO Milestones Celebrations

It's been 20 years since the APDBO established the Centre in Hamilton and more than 25 years since the APDBO as an entity came into existence. The Managing Committee has decided to organise a get-together to celebrate these and other milestones this year. We would like all the members to participate in the celebrations. Since the events will take place on the long weekend of July 1, we need to book the venue in advance and plan our programme.
