DONATE A WORKING FREEZER FOR A GOOD CAUSE!

The Mooloolah Swim Club, which meets weekly at the Mooloolah Swimming Pool , 48 Kings Road, Mooloolah Valley, is having their open day on Friday October 8, to kick off their season. The club is in desperate need of a new freezer before that time. They would be grateful if there is someone in the community who has a freezer in good condition that they would be willing to donate to the Club. If you would like to help, call Jane at 0407-655-136.

"100 years is a long way to look forward, but it's not very far to look back once you're there" according to Geoffrey Powell from Elimbah who just reached 100 years of age 🎂

I asked him what his secret was and he replied 'just keep breathing.' I might give that a go! Congratulations Geoffrey 🎊

P.S we are not related, but I'm hoping there's a common gene in there!

I seriously had so much fun this morning as part of Mayor Peter Flannery’s Invitational XI taking on Paul Szep’s amazing Blind Bats Inc. in “Beep Ball” Cricket. Even with full vision we didn’t stand a chance! But I did get to relive my glory days of “E Grade” Junior Cricket! 🤣🏏 ... See MoreSee Less
