The Taree and District Railway Retirement Club has held its annual retired members function. 

The dinner honoured newly retired members, and gave others a chance to catch up with old friends. 

Club secretary Barry Seghers was pleased with the turn out.

“It was a big role up, we usually get about 75 people, but we would have had over 90, which is great,” he said.

“It’s always a nice opportunity for friends to catch up who might not have seen each in years.”

Club members travelled from as far away as Brisbane to attend the evening, with others driving from the North Coast, Hunter Region and Sydney. 

The evening was attended by more than 90 club members

“We are the second oldest club in the area that celebrates members who have retired in the past 12 months.

“This is our 41st annual retirement function. We have had four retire this year, but two of them couldn’t make it.

“The other two, Kevin Spicer and Jim Tipett made speeches, thanking everyone for coming and talking about their time working here. 

It was a great evening, everyone had a great time,” Barry said.
