Open day at Ormsby House for Seniors Week

What a wonderful day it was on Friday, March 10.  

This was open day at Taree’s Ormsby House for Seniors Week celebrations. 

It was delightful to see so many seniors – a packed house - enjoying themselves. 

There was tea/coffee available and delicious snacks. A sausage sizzle was on  around noon.

The art exhibition was impressive and we are privileged to have such talented people in our area. Entertainment was provided by Bob Smith, accordion player.

The white elephant stall, stacked with many bargains, was well patronised. Some guests managed to play Hoy, in spite of the noise generated by all the talking.

A presentation was made to Craig Rogers, having been selected as Manning Valley Senior Citizen of the Year, a well deserved award. Craig is a member of the Ormsby House Seniors, volunteers for the seniors’ monthly lunch meeting organising the kitchen, and also volunteers at Lifeline and 2BOB Radio.

Manning Valley Senior Citizens Committee members were thanked for their extreme efforts for the year.

A great day was had by all.

Ormsby House is for all seniors in the Manning Valley, for carpet bowls, tai chi and card playing, also we have an artist group. You are welcome to come join in.
