Seniors notes

Kyabram Free Press - - NEWS -

LAST week we went on the ‘Fol­low Your Rub­bish Tour’ with Hi­lary Gregg, the waste education of­fi­cer at the Greater Shep­par­ton City Coun­cil. Our first stop was the Cos­grove Land­fill, fol­lowed by Western Com­post­ing and then the Shep­par­ton Re­source Re­cov­ery Cen­tre.

Ev­ery­one seemed to en­joy it and had lots of ques­tions. The re­cy­cling crew were very knowl­edge­able, friendly and wel­com­ing. The highlight of the tour would have been the com­post­ing sec­tion, with all im­pressed by the scale of op­er­a­tions. Luck­ily there was not a lot of walk­ing out­side as the weather was not on our side, with oc­ca­sional show­ers and a very cold wind.

We warmed our­selves up with a tasty meal at the Shep­par­ton Club and made it back to the Cot­tage by 3pm. All in all a great day, long and cold but very in­for­ma­tive and en­joy­able. A spe­cial thanks to Wendy, bus driver ex­traor­di­naire who is fill­ing in for De­bra while she is on hol­i­days in Syd­ney.

LOOKS like spring is close with blos­soms out and hayfever symp­toms abound­ing. Lets hope that the drought may break for our northern states and bring re­lief to the wor­ried farm­ers. Win­ners at bowls last week were Betty Baker, Molly Sparks and Dave Co­ram. Card win­ners were Dorothy An­der­son, Ian Stone and Molly Sparks. Games day will be on Septem­ber 19 so hope many will come and en­joy. All mem­ber­ships are now due. Get well wishes to any mem­bers in hospital or house­bound. Our club’s birth­day will be in Oc­to­ber and Seniors Week will be com­ing up in that month also, so there will be plenty of ac­tiv­i­ties to en­joy and par­tic­i­pate in.
