February passed quickly, still very warm, and some members have returned. We have made our own entertainment for a couple of meetings which is always enjoyed. Jenny and Neville bought a game of quoits – harder than you think! Bingo and a quiz filled in the afternoon.
The message for us in Seniors Week is ‘Positivity over Negativity’ to help us on our way.
The Country Ramblers entertained us; it is always a good day when they come. Thanks to our volunteers who have done extra duties when others have been away. Yvette Clague entertained us on her clarinet, and it was another enjoyable event.
Mareeba joined us, and two student physiotherapists in their third year also came from Mareeba as well as a teacher and three students from the Yamba Community College who are studying aged care helped out during the day. We are always glad to have students join us.
Other activities included a discussion on ‘what annoys you most?’ some great comments here.
The ‘Lolly Game’ is always a great favourite; and NO, you don’t eat the lollies till the end; then a game of Hoy – a card game and memories of what we did in the 30’s 40’s, 50’s and 60’s. This went well, as did and a quiz from Jenny. All in all we had some great meetings and special thanks to Jenny.
The feature of the month was a lunch at the Brushgrove Hotel. We had a relaxing time in the morning with morning tea, exercises, raffle a talk together. We then adjourned to the Brushgrove Hotel for a delicious lunch and a social time together.
