Wishes granted with club

OVER the past eight years, the PCYC Friendship Club has had a close association with the Make a Wish Foundation.

The PCYC has helped support Make a Wish, by filling donation tins to help raise money to grant sick children a requested wish.

Club members really enjoy their mornings together playing indoor bowls and cards with a delicious barbecue to look forward to.

There are many other fun activities that are held, including overnight bus trips.

It is a great way to make new friends and to help raise money.

Pat Russell, the past president of Make a Wish, said it had been a pleasure to join the Friendship Club on many occasions to receive the donation tins and also to see the members enjoying themselves.

Irene Petretic, the co-ordinator of the PCYC Friendship Club, agreed with Pat that the times together had been fun.

Mrs Petretic said it had been a pleasure to have Pat join the club on many occasions and the members agreed.

"Pat has become part of the club just by simply joining us for morning tea and to receive the filled donation tins."

Lester Rogers, the new president of Make a Wish, joined Pat so he could meet the members of the Friendship Club.

He said he looked forward to their continued association.

"We are very happy to continue this trend and welcome Lester to our club," Mrs Petretic said.

The club meets each Tuesday and Saturday from 9am to noon.

You are welcome to come along to 48 Targo St; the club is always looking for new members.

Join in with a game of bowls or 500. The first morning is absolutely free and includes morning tea.
