It’s a New Year - 2018

First Meeting – Different Venue

The club’s first meeting of 2018 is on Thursday, 25th January at the usual time but the meeting will take place in Kurrajong Hall 1 which is the hall in the actual Ribbonwood Centre. Click on the map below for exact location. The change of venue is because Heininger Hall is being repaired on this date.

All following meetings for 2018 will be held in Heininger Hall as usual.

Membership Fees Due

As most members will know all membership fees are now due for 2018. Envelopes will be available at the meeting, please fill in your details, put the exact money in the envelope and seal it. Make life easy for our hard working treasurer as she will not be able to give change.

Because of the location it will not be possible for us to set up the trade table but all the other activities should take place.

The committee looks forward to seeing all our members return in 2018.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year

Dapto Seniors wishes all its members a very happy and safe Christmas.


We hope to see you all again in 2018.

First Meeting 2018

Just a reminder that our first meeting is on the 25th January 2018.

Due to circumstances beyond our control the meeting will be held in the Kurrajong Hall in the main building of the Ribbonwood Centre but it will be at the usual time. Tea and coffee will be available as usual.

Membership fees are due so please give our poor over worked treasurer a break and bring the right money – membership is still only $15. Envelopes will be available on the day.

Looking forward to seeing you there.
