Markets add up to great day for Fifty Plus club
GOING marketing can be a pleasant thing to do. Not supermarketing, but marketing as in attending farmers and craft markets, especially on a nice, sunny day.
Members of the Forest Lake Fifty Plus Club joined in on the fun when a 53-strong contingent headed to The Original Eumundi Markets on Wednesday, August 5.
On the trip north we stopped at The Ettamogah Pub for a morning tea generously provided by several of our members.
Upon arrival at Eumundi it became obvious to us it was the destination of choice for many others as well.
The car park was full to overflowing and the stalls were buzzing with many excited customers.
The stallholders seemed to be adhering to the market slogan of "Grow it, Bake it, Sew it, Make it".
Business was brisk at the stalls, which sold everything from fruit and vegetables to clothes and knick-knacks.
Club members were keen to see and sample as much as possible and were soon scattered in all directions, meeting up with each other from time to time and recommending this or that stall as worthy of a visit.
At lunch time they were scattered across the various market food stalls and the two local hotels.
Members happily showed off their purchases and bargains when they returned to the coach for the journey home, all agreeing it had been an exhausting but nevertheless a good day out.
The Forest Lake Fifty Plus Club meets on the third Friday of the month at the Lions Richlands Club, Pine Rd, Richlands. Sign-in from 10.30am for an 11am start.
