Four couples in our Toowoomba Parkinson's Support Group celebrated their 50th Wedding Anniversaries on Saturday, August 7th. What a remarkable coincidence!

The winners of the Multi-Draw Raffle were drawn at the August Social Meeting. Seven prizes in all left seven people very happy with their wins. Thank you to everyone for all the hard work! We made a tidy profit so that was very pleasing and very welcome
