THE TOORBUL & DONNYBROOK PENSIONERS’ CLUB HELD ITS ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING IN EARLY JUNE. A NEW COMMITTEE WAS ELECTED, AND THEY ARE READY TO FACE THE NEW YEAR. LOCAL STORE OWNER NEVILLE BIELBY PRESENTED THE COMMITTEE MEMBERS WITH THEIR BADGES.

The Executive members are:
Bruce Hansford (President)
Ruth Eaton (Vice President)
Judy Glanville (Secretary)
Greg Wood (Treasurer)
Also with the regular Committee members – Pauline
Threadingham (Craft), Judy Doyle (Social) Judy Cottle (Raffle), Michele Muckle (Maintenance), Helen Mitchell (Library) Sandy Fortescue (Provedore), Jan Stephensen.

The major action of the Annual General Meeting then was to ratify the change of name for the Club. We are now known as the TOORBUL & DONNYBROOK SENIORS CLUB. In honour of the many wonderful people who worked for the club in the past 40 years, the club will retain the Club logo and the club badge. We are very thankful for their hard work and the good work done by the members.

Two members were recognized for their long membership and many years on the committee, with Life Membership. Grace Van Peype and Les Duncan between them serve more than 20 years as committee members in many capacities. We honour them and wish them well for the future.
Each month, the club has regular activities – Tai Chi, Indoor Bowls, Line Dancing, Craft and Cards and a happy hour on the first Thursday afternoon of each month. St Michael’s Church has a regular monthly service on the 3rd Sunday at 8.15 am. Our regular meetings are held at 10 am on the first Wednesday each month. We would love to welcome new members.
