You’re invited to the 2/18th Battalion Association Christmas lunch

The Parkview Bistro overlooks leafy Roseville Memorial Park. It features a mouth-watering menu that includes delicious pasta dishes and delectable desserts along with traditional meals such as hot roasts, sizzling steaks and succulent seafood.
