Over 50's report

There were 63 present at the meeting of the Bordertown Over 50s on September 29.

President Rosalie welcomed everyone including a large number of visitors. There were eight apologies.

A special welcome was given to the members of the Bordertown Bowling Club who were to provide the afternoon’s entertainment.

Happy Birthday was sung for Lois Miles and Mona Schwartz.

Rosalie announced that there was a DVD of the 46th birthday available for $10.

She also reminded members that nominations for Office holders need to be in before the AGM on October 13.

After two short jokes from Rosalie, Wendy Twigden took over as MC for the entertainment, which began with a choir dressed in Bordertown Bowling Club uniforms leading audience singing “Bless them all”, “Along the road to Gundagai” and “Ain’t she sweet and daisy”.

Next Alan Twigden was on the organ playing “The Crows song”, “Morning town ride” and “The loveliest night of the year”.

An amusing item followed. Ken McPhee sang “I’ve got a lovely bunch of coconuts” with Chris, Marg, Judy, Sandra and Julie each wearing fake coconuts.

This was followed by Thelma Twigden with an amusing poem about going to bowls and not being allowed to play.

Then Ken McPhee was on the button accordion playing “Wonderland by night” and “The Westmeath bachelor”.

Jeff Hinge read a few jokes then a very funny skit followed.

Marg McLean, Jenny Marshall and Frances Belluzzo came on stage using walkers. They were led by Chris Poulton in a vigorous exercise program.

Next Alan was on the organ again playing “Hour great thou art”, “The old rugged cross”, “Sailor” and “My happiness”. Isabel Hinge read two amusing stories.

Finally, there was more community singing finishing with “Show me the way to go home” to complete a most enjoyable and fun program. 

The next meeting is the AGM following a barbecue lunch on October 13.

Hostesses are Roza McFarlane, Joy Tucker and Betty Daniels.
