BBQ at the Lake 28th April 2016

A big group of members met at the Lake for a BBQ in April – the weather was kind to us as the many keen contestants took part in games of bocce and thong throwing and kept the crowd entertained. We munched our way through sausages and very healthy desserts. Time for a tea, coffee and relaxing conversation in the shade.  All our magnificent volunteers helped to make it a great day, thank you.  Special thanks to the chefs, Peter & Terry.

Robina Outing 21st April 2016

The Robina Town Centre is HUGE.  A small group headed down there in April testing out travelling using public transport.  An interesting experience which mostly went smoothly.   We all agreed you would need several trips to take it all in.  We did manage a nice morning tea at the Shingle Inn before heading off to do a bit of “window shopping”.  We all met up again for a tasty lunch and just happened across a Max Brenner shop.  Who could resist.

Kingston Butter Factory Outing 17th March 2016

We all had a great day out on the 17 March (St Patrick’s Day) visiting the Kingston Butter Factory.  The visit included a delicious Devonshire tea.  The tour through the old Butter Factory was so enjoyable, really worthy of a visit.  The Arts and Crafts Cooperative houses both contemporary and traditional works as well as arts and crafts (the biggest display in Queensland) by local artists.

From there it was on to visit Historic Mayes Cottage, how wonderful such properties are still cared for today.  Time for lunch at the Gem Hotel, very nice and then on to Old Beenleigh Town historical village and museum.  What an amazing collection.
