WHAT A NIGHT! OH! WHAT A NIGHT IT WAS!

Posted in 'Resident Events, Village Events' on November 22, 2014
The Three Tenors

On Saturday 11th October we enjoyed a very much anticipated return of The Three Tenors. They entertained us with Opera, Operetta, and much loved Evergreens with a touch of Modern thrown in.

It was a night enjoyed by all who attended. It was a whole lot of fun, every one enjoyed the night immensely. The savouries provided beforehand were also very delicious. Congratulations must go to Phil and Dorothy for organising the event.

WINERY AND LAVENDER FARM TOUR REPORT

Posted in 'Resident Events, Sales, Village Events' on November 13, 2014
Kooroomba Winery & Lavendar Farm
Our last trip for the year was fabulous! Pamela has done an excellent job organising our outings.
We once again had a wonderful time!

We made our way up the busy Ipswich Motorway which has changed a lot in recent years. The morning tea stop was at the lovely Queens Park in Ipswich, a special place with some very large old trees, very nice tea and coffee, and wonderful cakes.

After morning tea we made our way to Boonah to the Winery and Lavender Farm. The views of the scenery along the way were exceptional as was the view from the farm.

There was a lovely small wallaby lying in the garden when we arrived, no doubt part of the farm's pets.
Lunch consisted of a delightful roast lunch and a lovely desert and, after which, we made our way home with a stop at Aratula, once again enjoying the magnificent scenery along the way.

Well done Pamela, thanks for a great outing, most enjoyable!
