BOWLS winners last week were Di Di, Richie and Elaine Coram and David Coram. Cards were won by Cheryl Trevaskis, Sandor Gurban and Dorothy Harris. Don’t forget that names need to be on the board for Rochester Games Day on October 25. Tickets are now available for the birthday lunch at our club on October 20. Price is $13 for members and $16 for non-members. Our morning of fashion begins at 10.30am tomorrow. Entrance fee, lucky door prize and morning tea. Maybe you could purchase your summer or spring outfit. Get-well wishes to any members in hospital or housebound. Hope to see you at the club again soon.
LAST week we had a visit from Nerida Dye from the Community Outreach Program. She brought along a memory box of old utensils to stimulate our memories and start discussion of the old days. Some things amused us when we discovered their real uses were not what we expected. Next week we’re off to Shepparton RSL. Merry Melodies with Tom Rutlidge will be the entertainment of the day. Don’t forget to mark Sunday, October 22 in your diary for the Girgarre Open Garden Festival. All are welcome. For more information, ring 5854 6482.
AT LAST week’s meeting it was suggested that as next year’s birthday will be our 50th, we should put our thinking caps on and have a party that is relevant to the occasion. Five decades of seniors have come to the club week after week to have a good time with like-minded people. Anyone with old photos of past times may be able to help us with a record of days gone by.
Our last bus trip to Mulwala Club was a good trip with an excellent meal. The next trip is to Rich River and is a night trip with a four-hour stay. They told us last trip that renovations will be finished by then, which will be good to see. We have had several film afternoons and these have been appreciated by those who have seen them. The next one will be on October 29 at 2pm. Gold coin at the door and a cuppa and a chat after the film. The annual fees are due and remain at $5. There is a $5 meal, Wednesdays at 11.30am. We are thinking of those members who are not well.
