    Dear Friends

    We have decided to postpone the ceremony to award the Eureka Australia Day medal to Grahame and Esme Garner because of the flooding in Brisbane.

    We will find an alternative time to conduct the ceremony, but will have to wait to see what the next few days brings before choosing another time.

    We will notify you again.
