The new fire truck arrived in Toorbul this Month!

Early August saw the Toorbul & Donnybrook Pensioners’ Club hold its Annual General Meeting – nearly 3 months late.

There were more than 35 members present and quite a few apologies. We filled the whole hall as we carefully practised “Social Distancing”.

Our year has been a disrupted one, but members have been happy to restart many of our activities – Tai Chi, Indoor Bowls, Line Dancing, Cards and Craft, as well as our regular monthly meeting. St. Michael’s Church conducts a Church Service at the Club House on 3rd Sunday of each month at 8.15am.

During the past year we have been able to donate money to regular charities – the hospital, cancer research, and our special project was to help out our local Rural Fire Brigade with alterations to their building to accommodate the NEW FIRE TRUCK. The Rural Firies do a great job, and we are pleased to have a working organisation within our small town.
