Mr Johnston said Tatura Men’s Shed was pleased to put on the luncheon for seniors.
‘‘There has been plenty of help from members in the lead-up to the event and on the day, with members making everyone feel welcome,’’ Mr Johnston said.
‘‘The luncheon took a lot of organising and everyone pitched in, even partners of members who made up desserts.
‘‘All-up it was a great day and everyone appeared to enjoy themselves.’’
