Elderly resident donates

RESIDENTS at Coonambula Lodge will have plenty to be excited about when a new activity room is opened this month.

The room is the result of a generous $140,000 donation from one of the residents, Betty Asmus, which helped fund the Queensland Health project.

Coonambula Lodge caters for aged care residents next to the Mundubbera Hospital.

Work on the room began in March.

Mrs Asmus, who will be 98 in December, has been a resident of the lodge for three years.

Mundubbera Hospital Auxiliary Committee and staff from Mundubbera Health Service have organised a morning tea on October 7 from 9.30am to celebrate the opening of the activity room.

On behalf of the residents and staff at Coonambula Lodge, Sunshine Coast-Wide Bay Health Service District Northern Cluster manager Beth Norton thanked Mrs Asmus for her generous contribution.
