On Thursday seventy Gympie National Seniors joined together at the Orchid Room,RSL for a very enjoyable lunch.

A big thankyou to Corrie Bowling for the wonderful table decorations.

The "Gympie Songbirds" entertained with some wonderful Christmas songs before lunch was served. A small gift was given to them for coming.

During lunch a quiz was conducted. Twenty-five raffles were drawn for some lucky seniors.

Funds from a street stall held earlier this year were distributed. People there to collect their donations were Helen Hall from Palliative Care, Marlene and Gordon Owen from S.C.I.C. and Allan Johnston from the Community Bus.

Other donations were given to R.A.C.Q. Care Flight Helicopter and Q.I.M.R. President, Col Wessling, and Treasurer, Beryl Polkinghorne, cut the special Christmas Cake.

An Over Blooming Eighty certificate was given to Pam Eves for turning 80 in January.

Everyone enjoyed the scrumptious Christmas Lunch and is ready to meet together for their Australia Day Outing on 26 January next year.
