Joining the virtual dinner table for July’s dinner will be our very special guests: Patricia Hovey and Jo Burden from the Brisbane Combined Union Choir; Michael Conrad, founder of the CAVU Distillery and musician Andrea Kirwin. Like all Long Table Dinners, you’ll enjoy the company, the humour and the unexpected!

Patricia Hovey, the president of the Brisbane Combined Union Choir and its members will contribute to the opening of the VLTD with a very special song ‘Solidarity Forever.’

A member of the choir Jo Burden (all the way from Malta) will be the first speaker of the night, sharing her thoughts on zooming, singing across the ocean, writing and walking the streets of Valetta.

 Michael Conrad is the founder of the CAVU Distillery, tucked away behind the Big Pineapple. Michael will share his story of building a home for Sunshine and Sons Original Vodka and Dry Gin Distillery and how he dealt with launching it into the market place of 2020. CAVU is an aeronautical term for Ceiling And Visibility Unlimited. ‘Taking each day as it comes’ is for Michael a way to live.

Some of you remember our first contributing musician to our April VLTD, Andrea Kirwin (or Andrea Viti K).  Andrea has worked and achieved a lot over the three months since she sang and created a song about our VLTD. Her PATREON website is literally bursting! Andrea has collaborated with many including the AMBO’s very own Robbie Murray and serenaded on a sunset/full moon yacht cruise with Saltwater Eco Tours. This time we will hear her song ‘We will Overcome.’

While it was palpable at the last VLTD how much people would love to meet in person, we’re afraid it’s still not possible, so enjoy the chance to join with someone far away – or in Victoria… invite your friends, your neighbours and any interstate and overseas fly-ins – please share this invitation!

To join in our VLTD at 6.00pm (AEST) Thursday 16 July it is important that you RSVP to Ludmila Doneman by Tuesday 14th July. 

Those who RSVP will be emailed an invitation with all that you’ll need to know plus the Zoom link. If you are not experienced with Zoom let us know now and we will ‘walk’ you through it ahead of the meeting – it’s easy!
