Busy day a winner
Childers and Gin Gin groups relish a range of activities
BINGO, food, raffles and cent sales made Childers Pensioners and Superannuants League’s last activity day one to remember.
One of two events per year to include Gin Gin Social Club, the day featured about 50 people enjoying a range of activities.
Events co-ordinator Maurie Styles said it was a anticipated day. “Everyone enjoys it,” he said.
“We’ve been combining for events like this for a number of years.”
Gin Gin Social Club secreatry Thelma Jensen said the trip to the Childers Anglican Church-hosted event was one of many for the club.
“We go to Biggenden, Biloela, Gayndah and a few others,” she said.
“A few of the other clubs have indoor games as well so we tend to play those. But with Childers, it’s a bit more social.
“We’re always looking for more members so if anyone out there enjoys indoor games, they’re welcome to join.”
Mr Styles said Childers member Dot won the fruit tray raffle, supplied by the Childers IGA, and showed “real country hospitality” by sharing her tray with local and visiting members.
“It was good to see members of both clubs mixing with each other and enjoying the day,” he said.
“The prizes were evenly shared by each club.
“Also thanks to our members who donated to our cent sale table ... it is greatly appreciated.”
Childers PSL will visit Gin Gin Social Club in August.
ENJOYABLE: Childers Pensioners and Superannuants League members “kept the food coming” for about 50 attendees.
