Celebrate Jaycettes’ golden jubilee at annual Girl’s Night In
TO BE a Mundubbera Jaycette, you need to be two things, according to long-term member Christine Vicary: “a good talker and a good eater”.
These attributes will be on display this Saturday, as the women’s social club celebrates its golden jubilee at its annual Girls Night In event.
“It’s about socialising, having a fun night out with a group of friends,” Ms Vicary, who has been a member for 38 years, said.
The members will also be raising money for a good cause while they’re at it, whether that be for World Vision Australia, a special fund for Mundubbera State School students who can’t afford to go on camp, or other worthy local charities.
Ms Vicary said the age bracket of Mundubbera Jaycette members ranged from 36–83 years and the group had definitely “matured and mellowed” since its wilder earlier days.
“In our younger days, it would be 11–12pm before we finished socialising, now we are normally home and in bed by 9pm,” she laughed. “We’re a little bit older.” Saturday’s event will feature a pair of guest speakers.
The first is Cairns-based producer, Filipino-born Stella Chiu-Freund, who will be sharing tales of her adventures during the filming and production of Woman – The Movie.
The second is inaugural Jaycette Jill Vicary.
“Her speech will be on all the funny things we’ve been up to over the years,” Ms Vicary said.
“She’s got rubbish on a few of us.”
Tickets to the Girls Night In at the Mundubbera Bowls Club cost $40 and include entertainment, such as a stand-up comedy act and fashion parade featuring styles from throughout the decades, music, finger food, raffles and prizes.
