Perkins Memorial Dinner

Come celebrate Queensland Entomology at the inaugural Perkins Memorial Dinner 12 September, 2017 

Come and celebrate Queensland Entomology with us! The inaugural Perkins Dinner will be held in the beautiful function room of the St Lucia Golf Club on 12th September. Arrival time is 6pm: time to enjoy pre-dinner drinks and nibbles while viewing the photo displays and catching up with friends. Dinner starts at 7pm. President Tim Heard will be our emcee for the evening.

Program includes a welcome to special guests, an induction of an Honorary Life Member, Roll Call of past Presidents and more. We hope the Dinner will provide an opportunity for entomologists to meet up in a pleasant social occasion, especially for those who trained or taught at the University of Queensland and who would like to catch up. It will also be a chance to meet with the Perkins lecturer who will be a guest of honour. Come along if you are one of the hundreds of entomologists who have served on ESQ Council over the years and celebrate its ongoing success.
