Cel­e­brate Jaycettes’ golden ju­bilee at an­nual Girl’s Night In

Central and North Burnett Times - - PULSE -

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.
