NSA Rochedale/Springwood Branch had a busy Seniors Week

WELL it is called Seniors' Week after all and didn't Rochedale/Springwood National Seniors live up to that name from Monday, August 17, to Thursday, August 20.

On August 17, 17 members participated in packing the regular sample bags for Logan City Council, a project that the branch has fulfilled for quite a number of years and over that period all workers have become expert at filling of the bags.

Tuesday, August 18, saw members manning an information stand at the popular Logan Loves Seniors event being held in and around the Logan Entertainment Complex with members handing out sample bags and detailed information brochures to interested patrons attending on the day.

On Wednesday, 58 members attended the regular monthly meeting of the branch and following completion and closure of that meeting all were joined by invited guests on behalf of Mick de Brenni, member for Springwood, who sponsored a free morning tea for seniors, swelling numbers in excess of 100 souls representing many organisations in Logan City.

On Thursday, quite a number of the Rochedale/Springwood Branch enjoyed a delicious morning tea and concert provided by staff and students of Springwood Road State School.

This being a welcome annual event in honour of Senior members in Logan City and also to celebrate Seniors Week.

Tour director Loretta has organised a day on the bay for members commencing with a Bay of Islands Adventure Tour taking in several of the Bay islands.

Following morning tea at Victoria Point, members will board a ferry for the trip to Russell Island via Karragarra Island where the local RSL will provide a courtesy bus to take the visitors to lunch at the club.

Members will tour the island before a ferry ride back to Redland Bay Marina and from there they will be bussed back to the morning starting point.

To wind up a great day out the members will enjoy a tour around the Victoria Point and Cleveland areas homeward bound.
