Pensioners living the spirit

CHRISTMAS came nice and early for members of the Bundaberg Pensioners League, who delighted in a traditional festive lunch with all the trimmings on Thursday.

About 200 of the club's members met up at the Bundaberg RSL for the special luncheon, and secretary Myra Zink said it was enjoyed by all.

"It's more or less a thank-you luncheon to finish up the year for all the members," she said.

Although the band of pensioners hold events throughout the year, Ms Zink said the end of year celebration was one time when the majority got together.

"It was a really lovely lunch," she said.

"We invite other clubs with similar interest, like other senior citizens clubs, to join us."

The new year is traditionally the time to make resolutions, and Ms Zink said the club had already resolved to make two - increase its membership and bring more people to its cafe in their headquarters on Post Office Lane.

The cafe is open from 8.30am-11.45am, and members of the public are more than welcome.

"We are hoping some new members will pop in and have a cup of coffee and a sandwich, and get to meet some of the people," she said.

The cafe will be closed from December 9-30, and the membership drive starts on April 1.
