January always means sunshine, holidays and Australia Day and we have a week-long celebration to mark this special occasion. For school holidays we’re pleased to offer ‘Kids Eat Free’ and in keeping with the multicultural spirit of our local community we will be celebrating Chinese New Year as well!

Refer a Friend

During last year support for our bi-monthly coach outings dropped dramatically in patronage, and we have become aware of some reasons why. None of us are getting any younger, and the sheer exertion to get on and off the coach is quite noticeable. Additionally, we have a growing number who need to bring their walker, and this requires a large coach to accommodate them, which when we are not getting the patronage is not viable.

Following a circular letter to members during last year to canvass feelings, a clear majority supported the decision to replace the coach outings with a lunch at The Epping Club. The benefit of this is you would come to The Epping Club at a more manageable time of day, and conveniently park downstairs and come up in the lift. This lunch will be advertised in The Rawson Review and Epping Club members are most welcome to join us by making their booking at the Concierge Desk in the foyer. The first of these lunches will be on Tuesday 14 March 2023. Epping RSL Senior Members Association members will book for these occasions in the usual way, at the monthly general meeting.

For more information on the Seniors Members Association please ask at Customer Service or email johnprestidge@bigpond.com
