Two of the Nagambie Senior Citizens Club’s current leaders were recently awarded life membership in recognition of their longstanding dedication to the organisation.
The club, which is more than 40 years old, has grown under president Lindsay Moore and his wife, Carol, with regular social days, activities, trips, lunches and functions.
Nagambie resident Diane Grant said Mr and Mrs Moore have encouraged many local seniors to join the club, which provides its members with a ‘‘positive influence’’.
‘‘Lindsay and Carol have been members of the club for about 15 years, and on Friday they were shown heartfelt appreciation for all their dedication, enthusiasm, and leadership to the members of the club and their support to the general community,’’ Mrs Grant said. And other Nagambie Senior Citizens Club members agreed this was a well-deserved recognition.
‘‘The club is the envy of many senior citizens clubs because of how Lindsay and the members have built it into a great success,’’ committee member Wally Cubbin said.
