Older Men Unlimited worth their weight in gold

OLDER Men Unlimited were worth their weight in gold according to Maryborough Quota members.

Quota president Val Harvey mentioned the Maryborough group at a recent presentation.

"We couldn't have run our recent annual Quota Bookfest without them," Val said.

"They set up tables, carried heavy boxes of books, helped to pack up, and did all the heavy lifting that is too much for some of our ladies."

Val said the bookfest was a huge success.

"A substantial amount of the proceeds, as with previous Bookfests will be donated to Breast Cancer Research, to help find a cure for this terrible disease which effects so many," she said.

"The remainder will be donated to local charities and needy causes with a special emphases on Creating Sound Beginnings for Children, a theme created by Quota's International body."

Older Men Unlimited were a group of retired men who get together at their club house at 4 Airport Dr, Maryborough Airport, for fellowship and friendship.

These men offer support to one and other, as many men on retiring from the workforce find they miss the comradely of their workmates, and it can leave a large void in their lives.
