The Murray Bridge branch of the SA Pensioners held an informative social afternoon for their monthly meeting at John Dohler Hall on October 23 at 1.30pm.

Guest speaker was Debbie Burton from the local council, who gave members many avenues of help they could get as seniors or people with a disability.

Members were most grateful for her time and answers to many questions.

She was most interesting to all.

Opening the meeting, the president gave a warm welcome to all members, saying it was good to see so many, and to one visitor, Marlene Faye.

The usual opening songs were sung, and the club prayer.

Birthdays for November were Alice Brown and Beryl Evans; Happy Birthday was sung to them.

A list of apologies was read out, then members got on with business.

Secretary Dee Sturgess read the minutes from last month, mostly about the Christmas trip to Middleton Tavern leaving at 9am from the railway car park and returning at 5pm on November 21.

The door raffle was then drawn and vouchers won by Ms Sturgess and Estelle O'Farrell.

Afternoon tea was served and enjoyed by all.

The meeting closed with the singing of Auld Lang Syne and God Save the Queen.

The next social will be a Christmas party in the hall, where good food and Christmas carols will give members a fond farewell to 2019.

Visitors will be most welcome.
