URGENT NOTE! There has been a change of venue.
We can no longer go to Molly Blooms (it's closing down) so instead, at the same time as given elsewhere, i.e. 1 pm or even earlier if you wish, we will meet at "The London Restaurant - Upstairs", at 92-94 Beach Street, Port Melbourne.
It's even closer to Station Pier than the original place, so
SEE YOU THERE ON SATURDAY 25th JUNE - NEXT SATURDAY

More details of the family are in the book Joyce: descendants of Edmund and Catherine Joyce 1855 to 1975 compiled by Patricia Joyce and Margaret Thomas and printed in early 1975, for the family reunion held at the Redemptorist Monastery in Ballarat on the 30th March 1975.
