2019 Birthday Celebration, Calamvale Branch
On October 2nd 2019, the Calamvale Branch of NSA celebrated its 16th birthday. Janess Peterson, our resident cake making queen, made our beautiful birthday cake for our special day.
Our guest entertainer, Jay Turner, turned the clock back for us as we all became teenagers again with his fantastic songs from the 50's and 60's. Looking around the room, I could see that we all remembered the words of all the songs. It didn't take long before many of our members were up dancing, singing, laughing and having a wonderful time.
