Fancy an old-fashioned game with friends at Maryborough RSL

THERE'S not much you can get for a dollar these days, until now.

The Maryborough RSL Citizens Auxiliary have organised a senior's board game afternoon every Monday.

Auxiliary member Nan Ott said she wants to see more people out enjoying old- fashioned games like rummy and scrabble.

"The auxiliary want to do something for the folks who are housebound or lonely - giving them an outside activity," she said.

"This is my little project I want to get up and running.

"It is a great way to get out, have a bit of company, play a game and keep the mind active.

"And in return they could buy a drink or a meal and help support the RSL."

Nan said the auxiliary had been up and running for about six months.

"We have taken over organising the Prep Packs which are donated to every prep student in Maryborough," she said.

She said the auxiliary were looking for donations of games.

The Maryborough RSL Citizens Auxiliary will hold Senior's Board Game Afternoon every Monday from 1-5pm at the Maryborough RSL Club, Lennox St.

There is a free courtesy bus available. It is a gold coin participation free which includes a lucky door and it is seniors discount day at the Bistro.

For more information phone the club on 4122 2321.
