In a window I saw a bright yellow poster saying “Too Old for Youth Clubs and Too Young for Elderly Citz” and I thought – “Yes, that’s me!” I attended the inaugural meeting at the Town Hall on a hot summer’s night and put my hand up to join the committee, although I’d never been on a committee before in my life!
It was one of the best things I’ve ever done. I made close friends with like-minded people who enjoy a good book, a good walk, a good wine, or just a good laugh. I took my turn leading things like everyone else did – each hosting according to their own interests or timely inclinations.
I don’t go to as many events now but I’m still involved and love to catch up with those original members. Some of them live very close by and have proved to be great friends.
So – to anyone new – try getting involved in PPLAC - Port Phillip‘s Life Activities Club. It really can be worthwhile and fulfilling.
