Early August saw the Toorbul & Donnybrook Pensioners’ Club hold it’s 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 8.15 am.
During the past year, we have been able to donate money to regular charities – the hospital, cancer research, and our special project were to help out our local Rural Fire Brigade with alterations to their building to accommodate the NEW FIRE TRUCK. Rural Firies do a great job, and we are pleased to have a working organisation within our small town.
The new fire truck arrived in Toorbul this week, and training sessions will be undertaken soon. A new Committee was introduced by long standing member Mr Les Duncan (himself a past President).
Our new Committee has vowed to work hard for our club and community.
