Celebrating a busy year

February 15, 2018

The oldest man at the dinner, Rick Anthony, is presented with his cake by Linda Ryder.

Happy to help out: Muriel Bach, the organiser of Monday cards with a token of appreciation.

The Barooga and District Lions Club recently reflected on another busy year gone by, toasting all the hard work undertaken in 2017.

The annual senior citizens’ Christmas dinner was held at Barooga Sports Club and included a two-course meal for guests and a performance from the Barooga Primary School choir.

There were plenty of prizes on offer, including the wheelbarrow raffle, which was won by Cobram’s Di Maney.

The money raised through the raffle helped the club pay for the costs of the function.

Monday cards organiser Muriel Bach once again presented a cheque for $1200 to be spent at Ginya Court Retirement Village.

Each year an iced Christmas cake is presented to the eldest man and woman and the club was delighted to welcome back ardent cards player Nell Farrell, who continues to defy time at age 103.

Second-eldest woman Jean Winter, 96, was also presented with a cake.

Rick Anthony, 86, took home the men’s cake.

Co-ordinator Jean Dodd thanked all Lions members who attended the dinner and praised them for their efforts throughout the year.
