GHEERULLA HALL ANNUAL
CENT AUCTION!!
Friday 7th December 2018

So, empty the coin jar, throw in a few folding ones, and chuff off to the Hall for this signature event. Favoured by celebrities and locals alike, the Cent Sale has to be experienced to believed.

Kick off the evening with a sausage sizzle from our resident BBQ King, Dennis at 5 pm, and then you have an hour to rip up your tickets before the Sale starts at 6pm. Lets not let all the prizes go to travellers from far away this time!! Tea and coffee and bikkies available too. If you don’t know how it works, come along and learn. I’ll teach you.

We’re still accepting donations of new, second-hand but good quality goods. So clean out your cupboards of those things you don’t use, presents you’ve received donkeys years ago, that bit of small furniture you keep tripping over, or make a cake or slice. Goods can be delivered to the Hall anytime Friday. Or come along and be a runner. Any one available to help set up,or be a runner, (or MC), let me know.

See you Friday.

Pollyanna’s occasional update

Well darlings just a note to let you know that after yoga tomorrow (Saturday approx 11.00 am) the Reiki girls will be having a cuppa at the Hall and offering to give anyone who wants to try Reiki a little free session. Free I think but you could of course always pop a penny in the jar cos that’s how things work.

And you also need to keep in mind the upcoming Annual Gheerulla Hall Cent Auction of world renown. More details to follow but mark the date Friday 7 December with Dennis’ famous sos sizzle kicking off the proceedings at 5 and cent sale from 6 pm. All donations gratefully accepted.

And if this sounds a little breathless it’s because I appear to have lost the comma on my keyboard somehow.

Computer Help and Uplifting Talks & Videos

Don’t forget that we’re having the Computer Help session at 10am on Friday morning, then after that, at 11am we’ll see some Uplifting Talks and Videos.

These sessions are FREE.
(I encourage an optional gold coin donation to the hall, though)

Computer Help

Do you have some problem with your desktop computer, tablet, or phone?
I’ll attempt to solve it for you.
Do you want to learn how best to use your computer? Did you know you can use high quality free software to do most things on your computer. Do you want to know more about how a computer works? Do you want to find out how to fix a computer when it gives problems?

Uplifting Talks and Videos

Are you worried that the world is getting worse? Does all the depressing news on the TV, radio, and newspaper almost drive you to tears? Do you fear that the world is getting more violent and that terrorists are endangering our society?

Well, I have good news. Things have been getting better for hundreds of years, and though it might not seem like it, we live in the most peaceful time in history, with starvation, disease, and violent crime decreasing worldwide, as people become more moral and more caring of each other. Sounds delusional, doesn’t it? Well, I have the facts to back it up. Come along and see.

This is not a religious pitch and I’m not selling anything. It upsets me that people aren’t told how dramatically things are improving. I think we all need to know. It is getting remarkably better.

Finding Your Inner Clown

You know what they say about laughter being the best medicine? Well, it’s true. It reduces pain and increases wellbeing.

Can you make people laugh? As a special treat as part of Queensland Seniors Week, Gheerulla Hall (2184 Eumundi-Kenilworth Road) will be hosting a FREE Clowning Workshop on Friday 24 August, 9.30 am to 2.30 pm. With expert tuition from Coastal Caring Clowns, workshop participants will have an opportunity to reveal and develop their inner clown character through creative spontaneity.

Buffoons, Jesters, Fools and Tricksters have been recorded since the earliest times. Egyptian Pharaohs and Ancient Romans were the beneficiaries of the healing effects of the injected comic relief which these silly characters introduced to the serious and/or tragic situations thereby assisting the people to regain a balance and perspective.

Since 2001, Coastal Caring Clowns have regularly visited hospitals, nursing homes, respite care centres and have participated in a variety of community events from Caloundra to Noosa and into the Sunshine Coast Hinterland.

All welcome, but bookings are essential. Phone 0481129527, or email gheerullahall1@gmail.com to book. Refreshments provided.
