Seniors lunch on menu
As COVID-19 restrictions become lighter, the Manjimup Apex Club is asking whether residents would still like their annual Senior Citizens Christmas Lunch to be held in 2020.
Following a COVID-19 hiatus, the club held a wood raffle on Saturday and used it as an opportunity to engage people’s thoughts on the annual lunch.
Manjimup Apex Club president Tari Jeffers said the lunch was a favourite of the club’s and the people who attended the event each year.
“Obviously, a lot has happened this year and we would like the community’s input about the 2020 event,” she said.
“We want to hold the event, but we want to learn from our event regulars and their families if they feel the same.”
Ms Jeffers said club members were already working towards obtaining COVID-19 hygiene course accreditation and proper COVID compliant measures would be put in place if the lunch went ahead.
“Would you feel comfortable to come along if we held the event as usual at the end of November or would you be hesitant?” Ms Jeffers said.
“If people would rather we didn’t hold it and did a variation that didn’t involve people being close, we’d like to know.”
A survey has been left at the Manjimup Newsagency for people to sign or people can call Ms Jeffers on 0439 822 868.
