Southern Riverina news - - News -

The Sorop­ti­mist Club of Fin­ley had its ‘Meet and Greet’ af­ter­noon at the Fin­ley Mo­tel re­cently.

The day was de­signed as a way to wel­come new Fin­ley res­i­dents to the community, and in­tro­duce them to the good work of the club.

Res­i­dents who don’t of­ten ven­ture away from home were also en­cour­aged to at­tend, en­abling them to make new friends and adopt new so­cial ac­tiv­i­ties.

Or­gan­is­ers say it was ‘‘a most suc­cess­ful oc­ca­sion’’, with 21 new res­i­dents at­tend­ing and meet­ing with other mem­bers of the community.

Syd Dud­ley spoke to the gath­er­ing, giv­ing them a very com­pre­hen­sive his­tory of the area.

He also pro­vided in­for­ma­tion about town ser­vices and ac­tiv­i­ties.

A list of the or­gan­i­sa­tions avail­able in Fin­ley was given to each per­son so they can fol­low their own in­ter­ests.

Sorop­ti­mists are happy to help with mak­ing contact with any of these as­so­ci­a­tions for them if nec­es­sary, or­gan­is­ers said.

The af­ter­noon was made more en­joy­able with the pro­vi­sion of a sump­tu­ous af­ter­noon tea.

There was much con­ver­sa­tion be­tween peo­ple and it was a very happy oc­ca­sion.

The club in­tends to stay in contact with all par­tic­i­pants, to en­sure they have hap­pily set­tled in.

Club mem­bers also plan to hold the meet and greet for new res­i­dents an­nu­ally.
