After attending the formal declaration of the election results, the first event I attended as a re-elected councillor was the launch of Enjoying Planned Retirement’s bocce season.
Enjoying Planned Retirement is based at the North Ringwood Senior Citizens Hall and is an activities group for senior citizens, providing a range of activities and events. This afternoon, over 100 members attended the launch and barbecue.
It did not begin to rain until the end of the afternoon, meaning most participants were able to play several rounds of bocce. Unfortunately, however the final round of the tournament was cancelled due to the weather.
Enjoying Planned Retirement is one of the groups I have come to know extremely well during the past three years and it was great to be able to mark the beginnings of the new council term with its many members over an enjoyable afternoon.
