Thai-day for Ceduna’s senior citizens

Ceduna Senior Citizens Club members enjoyed a celebration of Thai cuisine and culture at the most recent meeting.

Club members were in for a surprise when asked to arrive early for their last meeting, with Sai Stinear already at the clubhouse with her band of helpers Karen Collins, Bobbie Bennett and Carol Suter, who were all decked out in traditional Thai costumes to demonstrate Thai cookery.

Ms Stinear cooked chicken, noodles and vegetables and later demonstrated how to make sushi, all of which was devoured by eager club members.

She had also brought along several formal Thai gowns and created cross-stitch work, which were admired by the club members.

Ceduna Senior Citizens Club president Raylee Chandler said the members enjoyed themselves.

“We are always looking for something different to do, Karen Collins came up with the suggestion of Thai and she and the other helped with the cooking,” she said.

“It was an excellent day, with the ladies in Thai dress, and Sai’s cross-stitch designs were great.”

Ms Chandler said the club liked to undertake various activities in their fortnightly meetings.

“We go on trips on the bus, we are in Wudinna next week for a conference with other clubs and will also head to Streaky Bay next month,” she said.

“There are pizza tea meetings, we have guest speakers and play bingo.”

The next Ceduna club meeting will be on Friday, April 20 with the club off to Denial Bay to check out the recent additions to the Bethlehem Lutheran Church.

They will leave from the club at 12pm to head to the church, with members to bring a packed lunch.
