Underbool Senior Citizens

Due to many circumstances we have to cancel the Senior Citizens Meeting on Friday Nov 4th.  We hope we can hold the Xmas Breakup on Friday December 2nd. Many decisions will have to be made so will keep in touch with all interests.

Underbool Social Support (PAG) meets every Wednesday from 10am at the Underbool Centre. The members are currently enjoying making African dolls from paper.  We can’t wait to see the end product.  On 9th November, the group plan to go on their next outing to visit some sites of the Mallee. (Weather permitting) If craft activities, games or outings interest you or would just like to join for a cuppa and chat new members are very welcome. Please register with My Aged Care or ask for support by calling 50921111.  We are happy to help.

Japanese encephalitis virus (JE virus) is in northern Victoria, and that means our Mallee communities need to keep covered up and aware.

✅ Mozzies can bite through tight clothing. Cover up - wear long, loose-fitting clothes.

✅ Use repellents that contain picaridin or DEET on all exposed skin.

✅ Use mosquito nets or insect screens.

✅ Use ’knockdown’ fly spray, mosquito coils or plug-in repellent where you gather to sit or eat.

Tip – citronella candles aren’t effective enough! Mozzie repellents are your best defence against mosquito bites.

If you have been in contact with mosquitoes and develop a sudden high fever and headache in the following days and weeks, see your doctor. If you have more serious symptoms like disorientation or a seizure - urgently seek medical attention.
