Wondai Seniors News

Approximately 47 Wondai Seniors attended their Christmas party which was held on 9 December at the Wondai RSL. Entertainers for the event were the Stolzenberg brothers whose lively programme set feet and fingers tapping. Wondai Seniors singing group followed singing a selection of Christmas carols accompanied by Graham Beuck on the piano. Ivy Murray played some popular songs on her piano accordion and Carol Francis delighted the audience with her musical rendition if ‘O Holy Night’ on the organ. Thank you everyone for adding so much enjoyment to the day.

After a splendid lunch Santa appeared and handed out gifts to all. Thanks Santa for coming all the way from the North Pole. It’s a pity you couldn’t have stayed a little longer but the heat here in Australia was making you weak.

Five raffles and two lucky door prizes were drawn after Santa departed. A special thanks to Desley Fraham from Murgon who gave her time to monogram towels & face washers. They were gratefully received by the winners. The usual fruit hamper was also raffled and a Lion’s Christmas cake and chocolate selection were also on offer. Two lucky door prized were also added to the mix.

After the raffles were drawn the Wondai Town Band entertained us as is the custom each year. Thank you band members we enjoyed your music so much.

On 13 January Wondai Seniors have planned a bus trip to Tin Can Bay with a Fish & Chip lunch catered for by the ever popular Snack Shack. The cost of the trip is $35 per head and that includes bus, lunch and morning tea. Members are encouraged to invite friends as we need a few more to fill up the bus. Please phone Nola Wingfield on 41642398 ASAP to book a seat for this great day out.

As our club is now in recess until February, birthdays for December & January are Ann Brand, Eileen Beer, Hazel Schofield, Pat Farley, Colleen Just and Robin Sinclair. Have a wonderful birthday each and everyone of you.
