Plenty of outings on the cards

By Seymour Telegraph

Seymour

The next lunch will be held on June 18. Bookings to Bernie, phone 0400533197.

Millionaire Hot Seat is the next outing on June 25, departing Seymour at 9.30am. The cost is $20 and non-members are welcome to attend.

Members are reminded that subs are due at the July meeting — still only $5. New members are welcome.

The July outing to the Aquarium has been cancelled. Details of an alternative trip are being arranged and will be available in the next report.

Cards resulted with Des Brand winning 500. Euchre was shared by Clive Royals and Maree Joyce.

Bowls resulted in runaway victory for the team of Marg Kane supported by Gina Sabatino and Maureen White, the skipper who knocked the kitty off five times. A three in one game — she has been offered some special coaching.

Best wishes to members who are unwell at present.

Another great social afternoon at the club for new and old members. After the sausage sizzle there was a darts tournament.

The lucky envelope filled fast and birthday girl Pauleen won the prize. Members jackpot was not claimed and next month will be $110.

Afternoon tea is always a highlight and members wishing to stay late finish the day playing cards with leftover afternoon tea.

Our Thursday bike ride, Senior’s re-cyclers club, is in the fourth week with slow riding, slow sightseeing and coffee and cake. Come along and join in — it’s a short distance only.

At the next social day there will be a trade and sale table; bring along items to sell or trade. The table will be on view for the week so put price and name on each item.

Our mystery trip is full, but reserves are welcome; second payment is now required, please contact me as soon as possible.

The next event is our N.A.G. Cup horse racing day on June 12 at 11am, with chicken and champagne afternoon tea, raffles, music for $15/person. Names for catering please and pay at the door.

The raffle for the gold locket is progressing well. If you require tickets contact the club.

Shepparton CFA would like to make a presentation about fire prevention in family homes in July. Members and the public are encouraged to attend. The time will be 10.30am on a Tuesday with the date to be announced.
