Canberra Seniors

A Meeting Place for the Over 50s

This Month

Dear Friends
We are being a bit cunning by sending the June Bulletin early. You can guess that we are using it to promote the Fete which will be held on Saturday 1 June. Many have already brought in donations of books, plants and ‘trash and treasure’. Donations are still welcome! Thank you for all your support.
Raffle ticket sales are going well too. It has been terrific to see many members taking a book of tickets to sell amongst family and friends. The raffle will be drawn on Saturday close to 2.30 pm.
Many of the stalls at the fete will be the same, including Craft, Jewellery, Cakes, James, Plants, Toys, Books. You will notice some new ventures and some changes of location etc.
 Be prepared to access the Book Stall from the side door near the carport.
 Visit the Coffee Van for take-away coffees, teas, and speciality options (soy, lattes etc).
 Look out for performances of dance, singing and guitar playing.
 Try a Bacon & Egg Roll from the barbeque.
 Face painting is back!
 And lots more of our enduring favourites (there will be more apple strudel than ever!)
Can you bring along a friend? Invite your neighbours to visit? As well as a fundraiser, the fete is an opportunity to promote the Seniors Centre and increasing our membership to 300 is a goal for the coming year.
In June we will celebrate birthdays on Thursday 13 June (RSVP here) and Lunch and Learning on 27 June (RSVP here) will educate us about the options for personal alarms. Public holiday for the King’s Birthday is 10 June.
The Office for Seniors and Veterans is asking for feedback about what is working well and what can be improved to enhance the lives of older Canberrans. We have had a large poster in the dining room and post it notes were added with various suggestions. There are options to provide feedback in other ways.

Best wishes
