MEMBERS of Rochedale-Springwood National Seniors Branch decided to support the Logan East Neighbourhood Centre group by making a donation of funds raised during their recent Hamper Raffle. 

They supplied the Centre with their annual supply of Christmas Hampers to the less fortunate in Logan city.

President Charles Achilles commented that after a very successful 2015 year of operations enjoying well supported meetings and coach tours it is very pleasing to be able to reward those who are less fortunate in our society and unable to enjoy a Christmas treat.

Rochedale-Springwood National Seniors Branch resumed operations on Wednesday January 20, with a mystery guest speaker to entertain members and herald in the New Year.

This was followed by an exciting coach trip to Cooroy and the historic Apollonian Hotel at Boreen Point first licensed in 1868. If only those hotel walls could talk what an interesting past history they could relate.

All members will be looking foward to further fulfilling 2016 by supporting seniors in Logan city and surrounds. 

For information contact: Charles Achilles (President) Rochedale-Springwood National Seniors Australia Branch on 3208 2387.
