New Name and Committee for Toorbul & Donnybrook Pensioners Club

The Toorbul & Donnybrook Pensioners’ Club held its Annual General Meeting in early June, electing a new committee and ratifying a change of name to the Toorbul & Donnybrook Seniors Club.

Local store owner Neville Bielby presented committee members with their badges. Executive members are: Bruce Hansford (President), Ruth Eaton (Vice President), Judy Glanville (Secretary), Greg Wood (Treasurer), with the regular Committee members being Pauline Threadingham (Craft), Judy Doyle (Social) Judy Cottle (Raffle), Michele Muckle (Maintenance), Helen Mitchell (Library), Sandy Fortescue (Provedore) and Jan Stephensen.

Following the change of name, and in honour of the many wonderful people who worked for the club in the past 40 years, the club will retain the Club logo and badge. We are very thankful for their hard work and the good work done by the members.

Two members were recognized with Life Membership for their long membership and many years on the committee. Grace Van Peype and Les Duncan between them have served more than 20 years as committee members in many capacities. We honour them, and wish them well for the future.

Each month, the club has regular activities – Tai Chi, Indoor Bowls, Line Dancing, Craft and Cards and a happy hour on the first Thursday afternoon each month. St Michael’s Church has a regular monthly service on the 3rd Sunday at 8.15am. Our regular meetings are held at 10 am on the first Wednesday each month.

We would love to welcome new members. Please visit our Facebook page, or contact anyone at Toorbul & Donnybrook Seniors Club for information.
