Blast off was 9.30am with Marilyn’s welcome, Santina’s fun and games directions and Probus card games announcement. Morning tea followed with Ingham State High School students, under the guidance of volunteer Michelle, serving yummy scones and pikelets loaded with jam and cream. Everglow’s torch bearer, Noel, led the way out to the games arena followed by all the games enthusiasts clapping and cheering him on his way. Gold, silver and bronze medals were fiercely competed for, creating great fun and many laughs. Indoor card games got underway with card players also showing great spirit trying for the coveted prizes.
After the delicious lunch, again served by the students and volunteers, was enjoyed by all the free door raffle, with three worthy prizes donated by HCSC, Everglow and Probus, was well received by the grinning winners. After lunch, this great event was rounded off with two most entertaining choir performances. First up was the delightful Everglow Italian choir followed by Sing Australia choir.
On behalf of HCSC and Everglow, I thank our partners and volunteers for their much appreciated contribution to this great event. All played a role in celebrating the contribution our older people have made to this community over the decades.
