Mooroopna’s Rod­ney Park Re­tire­ment Vil­lage’s ac­tiv­ity cen­tre was burst­ing at the seams with the best turnout ever to a Big­gest Morn­ing Tea fundraiser on Fri­day.

There was a great spread of morn­ing tea de­lights such as scones and slices with many of the vil­lage res­i­dents bring­ing a plate of food.

‘‘We had more than 120 peo­ple, which is 40 more peo­ple than last year, and we ex­pect to raise more than $1000 for the Cancer Coun­cil,’’ event com­mit­tee sec­re­tary Ian Rus­sell said.

‘‘Peo­ple came from Tar­coola, Kialla Rod­ney Park Gar­dens and the hos­tels joined in the fun on the day.’’

A singing group and Bill Kuehnapfel pro­vided the mu­si­cal en­ter­tain­ment. ● See more photos in Around Town in to­mor­row’s News.
