Day Out Society
Twenty-two members boarded a mini bus on a lovely summer morning to travel to our beautiful Harbour City to view Madame Tussauds Wax Works.
It was while most of the folk were in getting their cuppa at the Pheasants Nest 7 Eleven Rest Area that one took a tumble and decided that her day out with us was over and would wait for family to come to take her back home.
Soon after it was decided that we call 000 for an ambulance as she thought by the pain that she had a broken wrist.
All present, including our driver, who readily made himself available for whatever needs, refused to take the bus away until help arrived.
Around 25 to 30 minutes, two very nice ambulance officers arrived from Campbelltown and decided that they would take her to hospital to get the wrist checked out as they also thought it was broken.
Back on the mini bus we continued the journey to Sydney while June was transported to Bowral Hospital to get checked out and spend the next couple of days.
Arriving at the Wax Works around noon we soon lined up in one of the lanes to get our tickets as we had been unsuccessful with getting them online, which worked out well for us as we got a better deal for the entry because of all the problems.
All enjoyed walking around and rubbing shoulders with the many sports people, movie stars, royalty, ex-prime ministers and famous people.
Come 3pm our bus arrived to start our journey back to Goulburn, hopefully without incident.
All agreed that we had had another great day out but were disappointed that June had to miss out on the day.

The first meeting for 2019 was the AGM with no surprises, no new office bearers, so nothing has changed.
Our number of members is decreasing: only eight members present with a few apologies from others who were unable to come.
We have one new member, Marjorie Askew, who has come to live at Legacy Lodge, so a very warm welcome.
At our next meeting on March 4 there will be discussions on our Mother’s Day Luncheon on May 6, the Legacy film and morning tea followed by a luncheon on March 13 from 10am to 2pm, and the Anzac Concert, which will be in April, also Anzac Day.
Plans are in the making for another bus trip to the Canberra Outlet Centre at the end of June, this time with lunch there.
One birthday this month: Joan Callinan on the 4th. Joan has not been able to be at our meetings for some time because of health issues. We hope you had a happy birthday, Joan.
