Join us for Open Day at 'the Club'

koulourakia greek easter biscuits 3822 1

With the excitement that was generated by the Centenary of our Club, members have expressed the desire for the clubrooms to be open more often for members and their friends to come in and enjoy a casual chat with some good coffee! The Executive Committee has thus decided to initially open the clubrooms once a month as an Open Day on the first Thursday of the month, unless it is a Bingo Day when our Open Day will be the second Thursday.
 
The first Open Day will be Thursday 11 May from 11.30am at Ithaca House, Level 2, 329 Elizabeth Street, Melbourne. Click here to find a list of dates for both Bingo and Open Days.

Come in and have a coffee or tea and chat about everything Ithacan, the football, world events or anything that takes your fancy with your fellow members and their friends.

Register your interest to buy the A J J Lucas DVD

AJJLucasDVDcover‘OUT OF THE EARTH’

The Life and Times of A J J Lucas

PLUS, MUCH, MUCH, MORE CONTENT.

AVAILABLE FOR PURCHASE SOON

Since limited screenings of this excellent 17 minute biographical documentary directed by KATRINA LUCAS fascinated audiences at our Centenary Opening in March, and at the recent 7th Greek Short Films Festival, where it was shortlisted for the Award, it will soon be made available for purchase by members.

The DVD will also include a video recording of the Centenary Opening as well as 15 minutes of contemporary live film footage, not previously seen, of Ithacan history containing images of A J J Lucas and his contemporaries during wartime Melbourne of the early 1940s.

Apart from the fascinating A J J Lucas footage, every Ithacan is bound to identify family members, relatives and friends whose live images appear in the compilation featuring contemporary events such as; the commemoration of A J J Lucas’s lifetime community achievements and 82nd birthday, the Allied liberation of Athens in October 1944, the Greek Return Soldiers’ march to the Shrine of Remembrance, the funeral of A J J Lucas on 13 August 1946 and closing tribute.

Please register your interest for the purchase of the DVD by completing your details on the DVD flyer and returning the coupon via:
