Healthy Ageing Program (Acacia Ridge): 2018 Christmas Lunch

On Friday 14th December 2018, Inala Community House Healthy Ageing Program (Acacia Ridge) celebrated 2018 Christmas Lunch with our valued senior members from the community.

From 11.30am, we welcomed everyone to join the celebration for $30 per person at Coopers Colonial Motel (1260 Beaudesert Rd, Acacia Ridge QLD 4116). We were delighted to see so many who came dressed in their best festive clothes!

Our Exercise Group ladies with trainer Josh. Staying fit is always better and more fun with friends!

Part of our Indoor Bowls club. We always welcome new members to join our great variety of fun activities.

Congratulations to our lucky door prize winner of the day – Clair Petersen.

A scrumptious hot buffet lunch was served from 12pm onwards. Entrees were salads, steaming hot bread rolls with butter and ham slices.

Our team organised a $10 Secret Santa gift exchange for our seniors with useful gifts like diaries, towels, kitchenware and more.

Everyone was invited to play “Guess How Many Lollies in a Jar” game.

The correct guess was 347!

Congratulations to our member Margot Benstead who had the closest guess of 346 – we hope you enjoy your sweet, sweet victory!
