Doting grandmother and grey nomad who should join Volunteers Anonymous and is greatly in favour of a ten day week. So much to do, so little time.
Join the friendly gamers for fun and fellowship and food
In my youth, any suggestion by the Ladies Guild of the Stafford Methodist Church to fundraise via a card and games day would have brought the roof crashing down. Fortunately, in these enlightened times when bridge and mah-jong have become serious leisure activities for many, there is no debating the subject. Thus, the Kenmore Uniting Church Women's Evening Fellowship is about to celebrate the tenth anniversary of this very successful event.
Apart from the aforementioned card games, guests are invited to bring along any board games such as Scrabble, Pictionary, Quiddler and Absolute Balderdash. The bridge players may be deadly serious, but there is no absence of merriment throughout the day. Participants are invited to make up a party of four, or join a table of likeminded souls. No one is ever left out of the fun and games, even if attending as a single. A number of men have been spotted in the past, kicking their bridge partners under the table. Everyone is welcome.
The $25 entry fee covers morning tea, lunch and a lucky door prize. From personal experience, I can vouch for the assertion that a delicious morning tea and lunch will be served. They have some super cooks in that congregation, who even cater for the gluten intolerant. Prizes for the multi-draw raffle include a beautiful quilt.
Time will fly between 10am and 2pm on Friday June 27 in the newly renovated Kenmore Uniting Church Community Centre, 982 Moggill Road, Kenmore. There is easy access and on-site parking. Contact Jan (3878 5424) or Fay (3374 2987) to book a table. These will go very quickly, so make sure you don't miss out.
