Machinery Preservation Club Of W.A. (Inc)

Social Outings


On Wednesday the 13th December, Members and friends met at the Gosnells Hotel as a fill-in for the cancelled Christmas Party. It was decided to take this opportunity to present some well-deserved awards which the Committee had planned.

These were Life Memberships to Victor and Jean James and Bob and Brenda Wallis. Both Victor and Bob have given great service to the MPC.

Victor was one of our original Founder Members in 1982 and has served in many positions in the running of our Club.

Bob likewise has given us 25 years of service and also held executive positions for most of that time.

The Ladies were presented with bouquets of flowers, to acknowledge the importance they play in the work their husbands do, and Victor accepted in the absence of Jean.

Members and Partners of the MPC met at the Perth Station on Wednesday morning, 20 March, to catch the train to Mandurah. On arrival at the Mandurah Foreshore, after catching the Shuttle Bus from the train station, a welcome coffee was enjoyed at one of the outdoor cafes - some even indulged in scones, jam and cream!

After a leisurely walk along the Foreshore and a very interesting wander through the Mandurah Performing Arts Centre, where there was a fabulous array of paintings on display, for the Mandjar Art Awards for 2013, in the Alcoa Mandurah Art Gallery, we all adjourned for a Seafood lunch at Cicerello's.

This was followed by an ice-cream from Simmo's, for some of us, before we walked slowly back to catch the Shuttle to the Station and then back home to Perth.

All agreed it was a most enjoyable day and plans were made to do it again at some stage.

Can you see what I see.
I can!
Jack and Judy take a well earned rest.
This eating is serious business!
Can't I even have a Chip!
