The Tatura Seniors went on a trip last week and got into the Christmas spiritDecember 6, 2012 4:06am
Kevin and Sunny Richards, along with Shirley McDermott, Hilda Watson, Margaret Cahnce, Sheila McCann and Marlene Pengelly, got into the Chrismas spirit for the seniors mystery pokie trip.
The seniors mystery pokie trip last Monday was a really fun day. Not one passenger guessed the destination, so no payout for a winner.
It was wonderful to see everyone get into the Christmas spirit, wearing an extraordinary range of costumes and hats, with the overall winner being Sally Hammond for her imaginative outfit.
The best three hats were Jan Serra, Val Beddell and Wilma Barrett, while John Hammond took out best men’s outfit.
Beryl Rollinson wore her lucky boots again and had a nice little win on the pokies. I would ask to borrow them but they would not fit me.
Don’t forget our Christmas lunch is on December 12 — $10/head. Please bring along a gift to the value of $8 to go into Santa’s sack.
