The Southern Gazette - - Editorial - BY CARL ROSE

Cyndi Loper must have had the 50+ se­nior ladies from Grand Bank and For­tune in mind when she sang the song, “Girls just wanna have fun”.

Ap­prox­i­mately 25 five ladies from the two towns gath­ered at the 50+ club in Grand Bank May 10 and filled the build­ing with laugh­ter, fun and ex­cite­ment.

One of the or­ga­niz­ers from the Grand Bank club, Ruby Dyall, ex­plained how the event came about.

“Our club de­cided we would have an af­ter­noon func­tion for the ladies. So four of us got to­gether and had a cou­ple of meet­ings. We de­cided to have a ‘crazy hat party’ and in­vited the ladies from For­tune to join us,” she said.

The ladies en­joyed them­selves as they en­gaged in a va­ri­ety of se­nior-friendly games in­volv­ing bal­loons, wooden spoons, ropes and balls.

Dyall added, “We just got to­gether and had a lot of fun. I am sure we will do this again.”

For more pho­tos from this event, visit Miriam Matthews and Di­nah Smith were suc­cess­ful in break­ing the bal­loon trapped be­tween them while Mil­dred Matthews and Louise Hick­man seemed to be hav­ing dif­fi­cul­ties.

Lil Rogers works hard to hit the ball to­wards the fin­ish line but was ex­pe­ri­enc­ing prob­lems.

Lil Buf­fett in all her splen­dor won the best hat con­test.
