Aberdeen's Golden Oldies for Golden Oldies

have been holding a luncheon for seniors and showing
a movie
courtesy of the National Film & Sound Archive of Australia on the second Tuesday of the month for
approximately 14 years.

However due to the recent suggestions by the Government
and medical experts that non essential gatherings of people
be avoided, and out of concern for our senior patrons,
the Golden Oldies volunteers have made the difficult decision
to suspend the Golden Oldies Luncheon and Movie until
further notice
The movie on 14th April has been cancelled.
We apologise for any inconvenience caused and hope
everyone stays safe and healthy until this passes.
*Stay calm and wash your hands*

As the end to another year draws nearer I would like to take this opportunity to thank all the UHMRL volunteers who have worked tirelessly throughout the year
to keep our organization running and to especially thank all those who have supported our functions in any way.
We hope to see you all again in February when the luncheons and movies will recommence for 2016.
Merry Christmas and Best Wishes to All.

Thanks, Jan.


Would you like to join us?   We would love to have your help.
 Below are some snaps of some of our busy workers setting up for our movie day.
We also need someone to learn how to use the projector as a backup projectionist
for the movies we can get on reels.

The Upper Hunter Museum of Rural Life Inc

 joined with friends for our Christmas Celebration
 on Sunday 28th November 2010
at Aberdeen Sports & Recreation Club

The evening commenced with a 4 course Christmas dinner created by Richard Cawley, BBC’s T.V. Chef.  Richard introduced himself and told a few funny stories (true or not) then he chatted to people and helped wait on tables.  The meal was accompanied by the unbelievable voice of Susan Davis.  When the delicious desert was finished the movie began.  Watching the old movies again on the big screen makes for an enjoyable night.  Some seeds were given away for growing for the upcoming Pumpkin Festival.  If you would like to grow some Giant Atlantic pumpkins for the competition seeds need to be going in now and are available at good seed merchants.
