MPs contribute to new bowls mat
Oak Tree Burpengary Residents received a special visit this week from Mark Ryan, Member for Morayfield and Susan Lamb, Federal Member for Longman who came baring gifts and stayed for morning tea.
They each donated $100 towards the purchase of a new bowls mat for the residents. Both Susan and Mark mentioned they could remember the days when they were young and playing bowls with their Grand parents and then reaslied it wasn't all about the game but seeing their grandparents enjoying themselves with their friends.
Margaret Simons, Treasurer of the Residents committee approached local MP’s and Clubs in the area and in total has collected $650.00 towards the new bowls mat and bowls.
Daphne Connelly, one of our Indoor Bowlers, was delighted to accept the money from Mark & Susan and passed it onto the treasure of the committee.
The Caboolture Sports Club also came to the party and donated $200 to go towards the bowls mat.
The bowlers were present at the morning tea and were so happy to have a new bowls mat made available to them. The number of players has increased and Oak Tree Burpengary have also hosted other Villages in the area to join in a friendly tournament.
