Canberra Seniors

A Meeting Place for the Over 50s

This Month

Dear Friends
The Fete is on Saturday 3 June from 10 am to 3 pm, not far away!
We have a huge raffle again this year. First prize is the homemakers Pack (valued at $1,700) and in-cludes a Smart TV, Stick Vacuum, and an Air Fryer. Please try and take at least one book of tickets to sell.
The ‘basket’ raffle items look terrific. Thank you for your donations to the baby, garden, pet and gour-met baskets!
Donations for the various stalls are now invited.
We have several volunteers listed for helping on the stalls on fete day. I am hoping for a few more helpers for stalls so that no one has to be on their feet for more than two hours. We are also seeking helpers for Friday, 5 May and for early on Saturday morning, 6 May. Those who can help move tables and boxes of goods will be especially welcome!
I hope you can come along to the next birthday lunch on 11 May which will have a ‘coronation’ theme. The menu is King Charles steak and kidney pie and Queen Camilla trifle. Please wear something special, sparkles and crowns are encouraged. RSVP here.
The next Lunch and Learning session scheduled for 25 May is on Pets and Positive Ageing. Please RSVP here.
As fewer people are staying for lunch on Mondays, Rosa is taking a break from providing Indonesian meals. Sally Liddy, who volunteers several mornings on the check in desk, will make soup for Mondays.
A joint membership and fete promotion will take place in May. You might receive a postcard in the mail, see or hear advertising. However, we know that the very best promotion occurs through word of mouth. Please invite a friend, neighbour, or family member to come and try an activity at Canberra Seniors. First activity is free!
By the way, don’t forget Reconciliation Day is Monday 29 May so the Centre will be closed on that day.
Best wishes

Andrea Dean
