Busy day a win­ner

Childers and Gin Gin groups rel­ish a range of ac­tiv­i­ties

Isis Town and Country - - News -

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.”
