It is sad news that we have lost one our original members Joe Nash at the age of 85. Our sympathies go to Peg and their families, he was always well liked and a pleasure to be around, he will be missed by all of us, God bless.
A good roll up at the Retreat for the Sugarloafers Christmas party. An enjoyable time was had despite the weather. Rain overnight Sat and early Sun meant a wet meeting again. A delicious Christmas dinner was served by the hotel staff in the outdoor covered area. Former members Deidre and Gordon joined us from Maleny (they were also celebrating their wedding anniversary) so was asked to cut the Christmas cake made by Carmel. We also had our AGM and the new committee members were elected, Pres: Noel, Vice Pres: Sandra, Treasurer: Bill and Secretary: Carole, .Joan was the only one present who celebrated her birthday. Sorry to hear that other long time members, Joe and Peg couldnt make it this year from Townsville. All the best for the new year..
A great weekend again at Pinevale, when 19 rigs made the journey. The weather was unpredictable but we made it home before it poured. Tremors were unusual and who needs an a alarm clock when you have cows chewing and mooing. Birthday wishes this month went to Desley, Vic & John (who celebrated his 80th birthday with a family gathering, lunch was mouth watering). Dick & Gail celebrated their anniversary. Welcome to new members Jan & Philip..
