A lovely day was had when the Tatura seniors group celebrated Christmas.December 20, 2012 4:22am
The last day for Seniors for 2012 was celebrated with a Christmas lunch on Wednesday.
The men did a great job hanging the decorations so the room looked bright and cheerful.
The women organised the dressing of the tables and so the scene was set for a lovely day.
Forty-seven people sat down to a tasty three-course traditional Christmas lunch.
Members entered the spirit of the season by making a special effort, with flashing jewellery, head-dresses and bright outfits.
After our meal, carols were sung by volunteer members, who possibly had more enthusiasm than talent, but still managed to receive energetic applause from the audience.
Santa arrived as the last carol was sung and generously handed out gifts to all, aided by his small helper, Shirley.
Seniors will resume on January 16, but there will be no council meal. Names will be taken for the first meal of the year on January 23.
Members not there on January 16 can still put a meal order in for the Wednesday (January 23) by calling Kaye (Butler) by no later than 9
As Wednesday was the big Christmas luncheon, no games were played.
Seniors wish everyone the joys of Christmas, and to all who are unwell, a very speedy recovery.
Merry Christmas and all the very best for 2013.
— Kaye Butler
