Christmas lunch


What a wonderful way to finish up yet another busy, fun filled year.  The venue for our Christmas Party was the Oxley Golf Club.  There were some pretty amazing raffle prizes to be won.  We had a super special visit from Santa and his 2 Lady Elves.  Everyone received a little gift from Santa and he happily stayed on for a while so people could get that special photo with him.  The entertainers, The Baby Boomers, were fantastic.  We enjoyed their music and a few took to the dance floor showing off their moves.  Finally it was time to select our meal from a very generous and delicious buffet.  The salads were so fresh.  The roast meats tender and tasty, the vegetables cooked to perfection and all enjoyed a lovely dessert and tea and coffee afterwards.  Christmas wishes were exchanged with everyone looking forward to returning in February 2019.





Trip to Maleny & Montville November 15

41 ladies and gentlemen boarded our Crisp Coach for our day trip.  First stop was Maleny Dairies and a welcome morning tea complete with homemade cake and biscuits.  Our group split into 2 and headed off on a very interesting tour of the dairy which included being able to see through the glass windows into the factory, watching various types of machinery in operation, a short film of the history of the dairy. A visit to the milking shed and learning how the process works.  A lovely visit with the baby calves and the experience of seeing the adult cow being hand milked.  Some people given the chance to sample the warm sweet milk.  We were all given a taste of the various types of milk products and everyone agreed they were delicious.  Next stop was the shopping street in Montville.  Some took the time to have a light lunch then a browse and shop while others simply took in the beautiful views towards the ocean.  What a big day out with many ladies very happy with their shopping, some buying Christmas gifts and others treats for themselves.

November Branch Meeting

At our final meeting for 2018 members enjoyed a very vibrant and informative presentation from Gail Harrower from  Mission Possible.  Gail and her happy enthusiastic supporters have had a very big year helping those in great need.  Gail with her wonderful assistant showed the great range of practical and extremely useful items made by volunteers.  These items are of valuable assistance for instance when people of all ages are going through chemotherapy, babies needing special care, adults whose life is made much more comfortable using various types of prosthesis.  Beautifully crocheted rugs, shawls, baby jackets, knitted toys for comfort and much much more were displayed so our members could see firsthand the wonderful work done by the volunteers.
