ART: Our Art Classes have been a great success, with some wonderful progress made by all. The days are filled with a bit of hard work, lots of friendly chatter and music. Hopefully it will continue in 2019 and the many smiling faces will be here again to learn and enjoy art with Cecelia.
SINGING FOR FUN: A slight name change for the singing groups, but the enjoyment and enthusiasm is still present. The groups perform a wonderful community service, providing entertainment for the Aged Care residents and other places here in Pittsworth and Millmerran. Their most prestigious appearance was at the Spring Sing at USQ where they held their own in the company of excellent choirs from Brisbane and Toowoomba.
WRITING FOR PLEASURE CLASS: Barbara is handing the tutor position over to Kathleen for 2019. While thanking Barbara for her efforts, we wish Kathleen a happy and productive year ahead. The atmosphere of sharing stories is to be treasured by all who attend.
LINE DANCING: Working on the principle of “move it or lose it”, the newly-formed line dancing class hopes to continue its good work into 2019.
CRYPTIC CROSSWORDS: A popular group for the word detectives who put their thinking caps on at each lesson and try to crack the seemingly impossible codes. Under Scotia’s guidance they succeed.
IMPROVE YOUR PHOTOGRAPHY: Photographers in this group are fortunate to have such an exciting and experienced tutor to help them get the very best from their cameras.
BIRDING: This activity is so popular that Alistair has two groups taking part. These intrepid souls brave the cold, frosty mornings in winter, but are rewarded in summer as they venture out in the loveliest time of the morning. A point of interest - the Kohl migrating from New Guinea arrived on the 26 October, right on time.
UKULELE: Another new group for Pittsworth meet at the Art Gallery Friday mornings and get great enjoyment out of learning and sharing their musical knowledge and skills.
LAPTOP TABLET, MOBILE PHONE, iPAD: Members who make use of this valuable service appreciate the one-on-one time as they are learning what they personally need to know.
LUNCH GROUP: As well as meeting locally with our loyal little group of members, we also ventured to Leyburn, where, besides having a fine lunch, we were taken on a tour of the WW2 military sites and historical points if interest by Mr Ron Hass, which made the trip most enjoyable. A delightful warming meal was enjoyed at the Brookstead Pub in the middle of winter. The highlight of the trip to Rudd’s Pub at Nobby (excluding the wonderful food on offer) was a visit to the Sister Kenny Memorial and the Craft Shop which the volunteers kindly opened for our visit. So you can see that, besides eating and enjoying one another’s company, we are on a quest to learn more about the surrounding areas which contain many gems of interest if you are prepared to look.
