Se­niors cel­e­brate

The Tatura Guardian - - News - By Madeleine Cac­cian­iga

Tatura Se­nior Ci­ti­zens cel­e­brated the spirit of Christ­mas last week at their end-of-year break-up, with a three-course lunch and party hats.

The hall was decked out with Christ­mas dec­o­ra­tions as mem­bers shared their favourite mem­o­ries from the year and pulled apart bon­bons with their neigh­bours.

Club sec­re­tary Bob Kohlman said he had re­ally en­joyed this year with the group.

‘‘We need to con­grat­u­late the group on a good year and wish them all the best over Christ­mas and a safe new year,’’ Mr Kohlman said.

Five mem­bers were pre­sented with Life Mem­ber­ship awards in­clud­ing Mar­lene Pen­gelly, Jan and Mor­rie Serra, Mary Meda and Gwenda Jennings.

‘‘It’s a great or­gan­i­sa­tion to be a part of and we’re al­ways on the look­out for new mem­bers for the new year,’’ Mr Kohlman said.

He rem­i­nisced on trips taken with the group through­out the year and the suc­cess of the drought-re­lief fundraiser.

‘‘Our trip to Hang­ing Rock was a highlight for me and our trip to Mal­don, that one was a great one,’’ Mr Kohlman said.

The club’s first meet­ing next year will be on Jan­uary 29.

‘‘We have a bar­be­cue that day and you’ve got to put your name in for meals for the fol­low­ing week,’’ Mr Kohlman said.

‘‘It’s been a suc­cess­ful year and it’s been a great year — we’re look­ing for­ward to see­ing what next year brings.’’

The Tatura Se­nior Ci­ti­zens Cen­tre is on Flana­gan Place, Tatura.

Here’s cheers: Jean Read and Jaan Paar­son share a bon-bon.
