What's the Buzz?

Theatre News

A good number of members attended the preview performance of Jesus Christ Superstar at the Roo Theatre in Shellharbour. Everybody enjoyed themselves despite the somewhat damp weather.

Our theatre visit organiser has distributed the club's tickets to the Premier's Seniors Week Concert on 19th March but she is also taking names of members who wish to go to Strictly Ballroom - The Musical (August)and the new performance of Wicked (probably November).

One of the advantages of being a member of this club is the availability of discounted theatre tickets due to group bookings. Ask Jackie at the next meeting about future shows.

BYO Picnic

Russell has organised another BYO picnic for the 6th March at Cordeaux Dam. If it is anything like the last one we had at Fitzroy Falls it will be a great day out. Bring your own food and drink, there are plenty of shelters, seats, electric BBQs and hot water available at the dam recreation facilities.

For those who have put their name down for a lift to the event remember to meet at the hall at 9.30am. Don't miss out.

Annual Picnic

Maureen has organised the club's annual picnic for 3rd April at the usual venue next to the Australian Motorlife Museum in Integral Energy Park a short distance along Darkes Road from the Kanahooka/Princes Highway roundabout. Tickets for this event will be on sale at the next meeting,it's still only $10 for a smashing meal, fun and games. Those who attended last year will remember what a great success it was. don't forget to bring your own cutlery, cup and a plate.

Kiama Walk

The walking group will have its first walk of the year in Kiama on Friday 21st March which co-incidentally is during Seniors' Week. Catch the 10.22am Kiama train at Dapto Station where Jim will be upstairs in the second carriage. Members can bring their own lunch or buy something on the walk. Should be an interesting day out.

Card Players Wanted

If you like playing cards then why not join our happy band of card players each Wednesday in the Laurel Room at the Ribbonwood Centre starting at 9.30am. Bring a packed lunch; tea and coffee is available. This is a very social group and new members are always welcome - why not try it out?

Fathers' Day Lunch

The Father's Day Lunch originally planned for 4th September has been put back a fortnight to the 18th September due to a clash of dates with another local society.

It is not a big problem for us but just remember to change the date listed on your membership card.

Our first lunch this year will be in May - keep an eye out for an announcement of when tickets go on sale.

The Next Meeting

The next regular meeting is on Thursday, 13th March at 10am - more details later.
