By Seymour Telegraph

Seymour

The outing to Millionaire Hot Seat is next Monday. Seats are still available for $20; phone Trish Wray on 0425811158 to book. Non-members are welcome, with departure from Seymour at 8am.

Bookings for the July catered lunch, which will cost $24, are required for catering purposes. Cameron Gleeson will be the entertainer.

July 26 is the trip to Echuca for a cruise on the floating cafe M V Mary Ann, which will cost $20 and depart Seymour at 9.30am. Lunch at own expense. Non-members welcome to attend.

Cards is still a popular activity at Seniors, and new players are always welcome to attend. Where else can you have an afternoon of fun for a dollar including afternoon tea?

Last week’s 500 winners were Clive Royals, Pat Gamble and Bernie Hangan. Euchre was won by Des Brand.

Bowls was again a competitive afternoon with Marg Kane well supported by John Tencic, Judy Bowdidge, and Flo McInerney with two wins and a draw.

It was with deep sadness that we learned of the passing of popular member Jack Ford. To Nell and family please accept the condolences of all seniors.

Last Wednesday the delicious lunch was casseroles and sticky date dessert. Trevor entertained us with some lovely songs and we then joined in some community singing.

A pleasant afternoon indeed — thanks to the cooks and Trevor.

The Annual General Meeting is on August 16. A Bring and Share lunch will be at noon and the meeting will start at 1pm. We would like to see some new faces on the committee and some new ideas for the club.

Wednesday night Bingo starts at 7.30pm at the hall.

September 21 is a trip to Werribee Zoo. The $74 charge includes admission, bus and morning tea. Non-members are welcome to join us.

Nagambie

We had our re-cyclers club bike ride on Thursday and it was a beauty.

Ray Harris joined us on his three-wheeler and enjoyed the ride, company and coffee. He is 91 years old.

Come on down and see the town — it is great fun and exercise.

Nagambie Amateur Gallopers Cup Day was another successful afternoon of fun, skill, food and games.

Lunch served by the ladies was chicken, salads, apple and quince pie and ice cream, with sparkling wine, followed by a huge afternoon tea.

Winner of NAG cup this year was John Berry.

Free raffles with the horseshoe on the tables, chocolates, scratchies, lucky envelope and spinning wheel completed the afternoon.

At 4.30pm cards started and didn’t finish until 10.15pm — it was a long time for some.

Our next event on July 10 at noon will be pies and movies. There will be a large selection of movies and majority rules on which will be shown; entry $10.

Things to remember are CFA day on July 24 at 10.30am; trash and treasure trade table Friday, June 1; Social day and members’ jackpot $110.

Raffle tickets are selling well; extra books are available at the club.

During summer we had ‘keep cool’ days at the club. This winter, we’ll have keep warm days with fun and games and good company.
