Picnic at Deep Water Bend

Friendly Get Together

On Tuesday the 10/6/14 the Group had a lovely day out at Deep Water Bend. Some took their fishing gear and sad to report the fish were safe. Don Gailer won the fishing Comp with the most fish caught but couldn’t take the prize as none caught met with the regulations and had to be returned to the river. So the the prize jackpots till next trip. Ha ha.

The picnic and BBQ went a lot better with a fantastic  savoury platter supplied by the Group, that was more than welcome. Thanks go to our treasure (oops, sorry treasurer) Debi, for her selection. I couldn’t concentrate on the fishing for fear of missing out on some of the platter.

I think all those who attended enjoyed their lunch and good company. Some went for an adventure walk to see the birds and animals but I am told the only kangaroo seen, was by Jacqueline and myself as we were driving out of the car park.

Koliana’s Afternoon Tea for the Volunteers

  1.                                              Koliana

Koliana Winchester invited guests to join her for an afternoon get together at The   Golden Ox Margate. The Redcliffe & District Cardiac Group were on her invitation list and were represented well. Some members wearing several hats. It was an excellent afternoon and I’m sure those who attended  all left a couple of kilo’s heavier. The finger food and soft drinks were never ending as we were constantly waited on by The Ox’s very efficient and friendly staff. Thank you Koliana and our thanks must also go out to Moreton Shire Council and The Ox for their part in a great afternoon.

The cake was cut by founder Maria Wheeler and long time supporter Dr Huntley.

It was good to see some new faces and catch up with the many friends at the Cardiac Groups 20th Anniversary Celebration. It was well supported and and from what I gather everyone had a great day.

Newstead House Trip

The trip to Newstead House turned out to be all we thought it would. A bus load of 24    members enjoyed a great day out. The weather was beautiful and the volunteers who run Newstead House were very friendly and very informative. It was a pleasure to  learn  the history of the old house.

The most exciting was the ghost room of course but the ghost must have been asleep as nothing out of the ordinary happened.

After a one and a half hour tour the group went to the Breakfast Creek Hotel where everyone enjoyed their lunch, which ranged from an excellent chunky steak pie to steaks, one member treated himself to a steak and lobster dish!!!!

After lunch some of the group decided to walk to the nearby Chinese Temple which was very interesting. The bus left for home 2.15pm and all arrived safely at Redcliffe thanks to Peter the wonderful driver of the Redcliffe Community Bus.

Christmas Party 2013

The Group had their Christmas Party at the Redcliffe Leagues Club again this year and like the two previous years the food was outstanding. A great menu choice and the desserts were to die for.

Those I spoke to were very happy and really enjoyed the day and would like to vote for the same venue next year.

The drawing of our raffle took place and some very happy people got a pleasant surprise for Christmas.
