Therese Skuthorpe, Maryanne Vickers and Carmel Darcy at Lake Poona
While the recent rains have been very welcome in Queensland, the wet weekend in July which eventuated for the much awaited Pig Racing event in Rainbow Beach was disappointing for the organisers and the town alike.
As luck would have it, the rain moved away quickly so at the Over 60’s morning tea at Bymein a couple of days later we enjoyed a really beautiful spring like morning.
Ray Kahl treated us all to a delicious damper, obviously the result of skill honed over many years. Naturally, in typical fashion, some of our other expert cooks made an already pleasant occasion pretty special.
Some of our more athletic members took the rather challenging (for some of us oldies) walk to the lake. The photos supported the reports that Lake Poona is looking particularly photogenic at present, with the little beach exposed once again in spite of all the rain.
Another recent enjoyable gathering happened in June when a group of our members attended a great concert at the Brolga Theatre in Maryborough to relive the songs of Helen Reddy, interspersed with tales of her life and career. As usual, there was much chattering and catching up at the lunch that followed.
Don’t forget: Tuesday August 2: August is AGM month. We will be meeting as usual at the Rainbow Beach Surf Club for morning coffee at 10am. This will be followed by the AGM and lunch off the menu. Call Dorothy and Don Pascoe on 54862357 for more info.
September: Our outing this month will probably be a visit to a ‘pick your own strawberries’ farm and restaurant. More info at the August meeting. Ring Ray and Lil Kahl 54863462
