Clarence Valley Independent

Osprey RSL Day Club

It was all very hectic last Friday and we were not able to keep to our normal routine as there was a small mix-up with our morning tea timings. Actually I don’t think many of you even noticed because you were all doing what you do best, “chatting”.

The arrival of the scones soon quietened you down enough to appreciate the dulcet tones of Skye McKenney who so ably entertained us with her guitar. Betty couldn’t get to the dance floor fast enough as the music permeated her body, and others sang along. Thanks Skye it was most enjoyable.

Sadly I must report the passing of Marcia Bailey this week. Marcia was the sweetest, kindest person you could ever wish to meet. She loved everybody, and was the most gracious, feminine, loyal friend and member of Osprey. My lasting memory will be of her tenacity to complete the exercises and keep up with the class after having been away for a short time. She was wearing a glamorous outfit and a huge triumphant smile as she completed the session. What a trooper. But I know she will be ever so happy to be reunited with her beloved husband Stuart who passed away in November last year. Loved by all and fondly remembered.

There are two things I would like to remind you about. Firstly there will no Osprey on June 21 as the room has been booked out for another function by the Bowling Club.

Secondly, we forgot to remind you about the Trash and Treasure on Saturday morning June 15 (9 til 1) at All Saints Anglican Church. There will be something for everyone including Devonshire tea and a sausage sizzle. Thank you to those who have so kindly donated so many pre-loved items.

Lucky door was won by Maree and $20 Coles vouchers were won by Cathie and Beryl.

And I finally got a Bingo prize…two in fact…amazing.
