New Committee for Toorbul & Donnybrook Pensioners

Recently the Toorbul & Donnybrook Pensioners’ Club held its AGM at Toorbul. The current committee was congratulated, and the new committee received their badges from our local member Simone Wilson. They Said “Simone is always a welcome visitor at the TDPC and she always likes coming to our small community. “

Their President is Ruth Eaton, Secretary – Sandy Fortescue, Treasurer – Pauline Threadingham. Other members of the Committee are Gavin Topping, Jan Stephensen, Jo Burke, Judy Doyle, Julie Brecht, Judy Glanville and Sylvia Jackson.

They said “We are looking forward to a great year ahead. Our first major activity is a Seniors Art Expo Day on 17 August. There will be many activities on show – painting, quilting, music, dance and demonstrations of other arts, as well as old cars, and antique artefacts. A luscious lunch will be served to those who wish to partake, and our members are noted as great cooks.”

Later in the year they will celebrate their Spring Fair – 14 September, Melbourne Cup Day 5 November, and on 14 December the celebration of 30 years of our Club House.

Regular weekly activities include Tai Chi 8 – 9 am Mondays & Fridays; Craft 9 – 11 am Mondays; Indoor Bowls 1-3 pm Mondays, and Line Dancing – 2nd and 4th Tuesdays 8 – 9 am. All are welcome.

They are always looking for new members and welcome both new and older residents of Toorbul and Donnybrook. Contact Ruth (0754292310) or Sandy (0427410112) if you are interested.
