Monthly Brunches – Last Sunday every Month
This is an open invitation to all CaribVic members and members of the community to join us for the start of our monthly brunch.
It would provide us with the opportunity to meet up in an informal environment, and have a general chat.
It also will provide newer members to the Victorian community to meet people and make friends.
And the lunches are reasonably prices so as not to break the bank.
The lunches will be held on the last Sunday of every month at varying locations
