Last month, 19 Rainbow Beach Over 60s picked their own choice of strawberries at the Cooloola Berries, 8km from Goomboorian. lt is always fun to find new venues close to Rainbow Beach for our outings.

The farm is very popular, particularly over weekends during the six month strawberry season. So sweet, straight off the plant. Then there are the homemade scones, jam, cream, coffee and the chance to talk at the same time as we support a local industry.

The first group arrives in style ready to start picking: Helen Hill, Val Duignan, Lil Kahl, Helen Brown, Ray Kahl, Phil Heron

There are quite a few outings in the pipeline, as well as the regular monthly morning coffee at the Rainbow Beach Surf Club. These include a barbeque in the Phil Rodgers Park in front of the Caravan Park on October 11 at 4pm and a Melbourne Cup lunch from 11am on November 1 at the Cooloola Bowls Club.

Early booking is essential for the latter one, so advise Dorothy Pascoe our president on 5486 2357 as soon as possible if you want to attend. The Christmas lunch in December will also be at the Cooloola Bowls.

Don H will present an audio visual in the meeting room at the Community Centre on Tuesday October 18. The theme, which should provide for an interesting and perhaps a different view of the world, is entitled Is Imagination More Important Than Knowledge?

You are asked start to thinking about a major outing of several days to Agnes Water and town of 1770 proposed for late March next year. We would like some discussion and feedback at the next morning coffee.

With the AGM over and new office bearers in place it is now go, go go. Trust you can stand the pace…..
