Maurie Memorial: a chance to say farewell to a bonzer* bloke

THERE will be no funeral service for Maurie Fabrikant who died on 16 May. Instead there will be a memorial ceremony to celebrate Maurie’s life on Wednesday 30 May at the Clayton RSL, 163 Carinish Road, Clayton from 2pm to 4pm.
Here are a few images of Maurie in his jazz persona. Note the ever-present cards in the top pocket for writing down the tunes!

*And for those who don’t speak Strine (Australian), “bonzer” means remarkable, wonderful, good.
