A reminder to WIA members and friends of the invitation to attend the formal opening of the WIA premises at Unit 20, 11-13 Havelock Road, Bayswater, Victoria at 4:00pm Saturday, April 2nd 2011.

The premises will be named "Andersson House" in honour of Henry Andersson VK8HA. Henry was an Honorary Life Member of the WIA, who passed away October 6 2004. He left his property at Humpty Doo, near Darwin, to the WIA. That generous bequest provided much of the funds needed to enable the purchase. Light refreshments will be served between 4:00pm and 6:00pm, and a memorial plaque will be unveiled at a ceremony commencing at 4:30pm.

For those not able to attend in person, members of Melbourne's Eastern and Mountain District radio club will transmit Saturdays formal opening and dedication live via Melbourne's VK3RTV amateur television repeater, which will also be viewable worldwide via the BATC ATV website.
