Neighborhood Club turns 25!

Neighbourhood Clubs founding member Eileen Gray dances with original Club member Alma Petersen to the strains of live music at the Clubs 25th birthday at Lismore City Hall last Friday.

The mood was festive with the City Halls Fountain room adorned with balloons and live music, as the Neighbourhood Club celebrated 25 years being of being one big family.

The Club, which offers day respite by providing an opportunity for people living in nursing homes or private houses to get out and socialise, has been meeting for 25 years and there were plenty of original members there last Friday to celebrate.

The Club attracts an average of 60-70 people each week and Club secretary Esme Eggins said some people from private homes would otherwise never see a soul from one week to another.

The Club meets every Friday at the Fountain Room, Lismore City Hall.

For more details phone Esme Eggins on 6621 5642.
