Underbool Senior Citizen Club

The Underbool Senior Citizen Club AGM will be held on Friday September 6th at 1pm in the Underbool/Linga Hall. Please come along to see if we continue to function.  Linda McGlashan (MRCC Rep) will be in attendance.

After the AGM we are having a social afternoon with afternoon tea (a plate appreciated). We feel something must be tried to welcome new residents to town plus ‘old` residents to get together. You don’t have to be a senior citizen – any age group are welcome to come along and join in function. If anyone has any ideas, please bring forward. This has been a question “why can’t we have an afternoon to relax, have a talk and a cuppa”. (especially for the lonely people at home). Let’s give it a go!!

M. Prentice (Pres) E. Lockett (Sec)

Ladies golf that has been held on Wednesdays has concluded for 2019.
