October will be a huge month for the Tin Can Bay RSL with both volunteers and Seniors a key focus. In early October the sub-branch is holding a Volunteer’s Luncheon to thank the volunteers who are the heartbeat of the organisation.

As President Don Holland said, “Without our volunteers we wouldn’t have a sub-branch. They contribute, on average, 400 hours of work every month undertaking a range of tasks including administration, maintenance, cleaning, catering, member welfare, and event management. This is the Board’s way of showing how much we appreciate and value their efforts.”  It’s sure to be a great day!

The monthly Drop-In Sausage Sizzle is a great initiative by the club with members, veterans, and community members welcome to drop in for a chat and to share the tasty – and free – sausage sizzle. The next Drop-In will be held on 7 October from 11.30am, with sub-branch Wellbeing Officers on hand to assist where necessary.

The next Veterans and Community Morning Tea will be held on 11 October at the RSL, starting at 10.00am, with entertainment by Laurence. Again, all in the community are invited, so make sure you come along and enjoy the morning tea, company and fellowship.

On 22 October there will be another great Saturday afternoon trivia competition.  Book early at the club (phone 5486 2110 after 3pm) to lock in your place, with a maximum of 6 at each table and a cost of only $5 per person. Bring along your own nibbles for a great day kicking off at 1.30pm sharp.

Our Sunday BBQs will continue, however on 23 October the Tin Can Bay RSL is hosting a special Senior’s Sunday BBQ in conjunction with Gympie Regional Council as part of this year’s Seniors Week. Come along and enjoy the BBQ from 12 to 2pm along with great entertainment and raffles.  It’s sure to be a terrific day out!

As well as all this we will also be planning for Remembrance Day on 11 November and a Rock and Roll dance night on 12 November.

Again, to all our volunteers – thank you for your service!
