Christmas Lunch 14 December 2017

What a great celebration for our final get together for 2017.  We all enjoyed Christmas lunch at Wolston Park Golf Club.    There were some fabulous raffle prizes, many donated by our very supportive politicians, Milton Dick MP, Leeanne Enoch MP and Cr Charles Strunk.   Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk MP, donated very generously towards Christmas Celebrations for all members.  Our entertainer, Romain, was fantastic.   This year Santa sent along his helpers, Angels Barry and Barry and their lovely assistants Ros and Mary.   With lots of merriment they delivered little Christmas gifts to all our fun loving members.


Melbourne Cup Function 7th November 2017

Our popular Melbourne Cup Function was loads of fun.  Barry’s Trivia Games, Pete’s Pallara Cup, sweeps, delicious lunch and the enjoyment of watching the big race on large screens.  Very special thank you to Lyn and all the other ladies for their fabulous catering,  great work of the sweeps team,  terrific help from all the men with setting up and to all those who came along  joining in the merriment of the day


Trip to Toowoomba and surrounds September 22-25

It was a great trip away in late September.  A chirpy group headed off for a 4 day 3 night adventure.  First stop was the Gatton Campus of UQ.  It was very interesting.  Our tour guide was very friendly and knowledgeable.  We visited the Wellcamp Airport for a guided tour and lunch.  We even had our bags checked through before proceeding to the departure lounge area.  On to Toowoomba to beautiful views at Picnic Point Lookout, the spectacular gardens of Japanese Gardens and Queens Park.  We enjoyed a morning tea of damper when visiting Jondaryan Woolshed and were given a great talk on the history of the area from a very experienced volunteer guide.  Next stop lunch at Rudds Pub, Nobby.  Back to Toowoomba for a visit to some beautiful home gardens.  On our last night at the motel our group excelled themselves making hats from a kit of interest items supplied and could use anything else available which had not been purchased.  Some great examples of people’s creativity and a whole lot of fun.  Last day we toured Highfields Pioneer Village, enjoyed freshly baked damper.  Wandered around the amazing village before lunching at the Farmers Arms Hotel.  We returned to Brisbane via Spring Bluff Station with its beautiful gardens.
