The Murray Bridge branch of the SA Pensioners' Association held its pensioners' social afternoon at John Dohler Hall on September 25.

The president opened the meeting at 1.30pm with a warm welcome to all members present and two visitors, then the usual songs and Pensioners' Prayer.

Two birthday members received cards, Estelle O'Farrell received a birthday cake for her 85th, and all sang Happy Birthday to both ladies.

A long list of apologies was read.

Secretary Dee Sturgess then read the minutes of the last meeting.

Business was the branch's coming bus trip on November 21 for a Christmas dinner at Middleton Tavern, then on to Victor Harbor for a relaxed wander around or some serious shopping.

The door raffle was then drawn.

Winners were Joan Rowe, Ms Sturgess and Helen Hollick; all won a voucher from a local shop.

Entertainer Maxine K wowed members with her beautiful voice.
