Outings are arranged on a Tuesday of each alternate month. Outings to a place of interest, which might occupy a morning or a full day, almost always include a luncheon together. Outings are well supported.
The next outing will be held at 11 am on Tuesday 20th June, for Morning Music at the Clocktower Centre, 750 Mount Alexander Road, Moonee Ponds. The program, titled Golden, unites superstar vocalists Luke Kennedy (Swing On This, The Voice Australia) and Irena Lysiuk (Your Song, Are You Lonesome Tonight), with piano virtuoso Damian Sim, for a musical celebration of contemporary music’s golden hits. Relive iconic music moments from your favourite films and stage shows. Bookings and payments ($25) need to be received by Friday 12th June.
