THERE is no better time to sign up for
a membership with South Gippsland
Right now the centre is offering a free six month
joining fee, which will continue to be an option for new
members for the next two weeks. With normal fees
costing $47, there’s significant savings to be had.
There’s nothing more important than the health
and wellbeing of the community, and Splash’s pro-
grams are all inclusive.
Senior members can enjoy a range of fun group
fitness activities including aqua movers, strong
movers and water workout available throughout the
“Aqua movers runs every weekday morning at
8.30am and is perfect for people to work at their own
pace and have a bit of fun,” centre director Adrian
Strong movers runs on Monday, Wednesday
and Friday at 10am, and the centre is trialling water
workout at 6.15pm on Mondays and Wednesdays.
The gym and the 25 metre lap pool are also read-
ily available for all members.
After each session, members can also head over
to the cafe and enjoy a coffee or something delicious
to eat in a friendly, social atmosphere.
Upon joining, members will receive a passport
to help them work their way around the centre. The
passport entitles members to a number of discounts,
including coffee and merchandise.
If you refer a friend to the centre, you will also
receive two weeks off your membership payments.
For seniors, concession memberships are also
available if you miss out on this offer.

The club provides weekly en-
tertainment for its members at the
Daker Centre in Leongatha.
Club secretary Ian Rasmussen
said it is a great place to meet new
people and socialise, as well as
enjoy quality entertainment.
“We currently have around

good. We put on entertainment
every Friday and have some great
acts coming up in the next few
weeks,” he said.
Mr Rasmussen said anyone
of “senior age” can join the club,
which costs just $5 annually.
“The club is open to anybody
who wants to join,” he said.
Some of the entertainment
coming up in October includes an
afternoon with The Hoffmans on
Friday, October 21.
The duo has it all including
country, rock and roll, 50s to 90s
covers, comedy and some opera
Mr Rasmussen said country
music performer Wayne Hors-
burgh will also be performing for
the club in October.

All other weeks, the entertain-

Mr Rasmussen said the se-

house entertainment group, how-
ever in recent years it has begun
He said the club is keen to re-
cruit some new performers.
“We want singers, instrumen-
talists and comedians, anything
entertaining. We desperately need
more entertainers,” he said.
“It is a lot of fun and social,
that is what it is all about, they
don’t have to be a professional.”
Another initiative the club is

area and said what they are look-
ing at is akin to what is installed
at Yarram and along the foreshore
He said there is land available
next to the Daker Centre which
has the potential to be developed
into something for senior ’s club
members to use.
“It would be fun exercise for
seniors, that is the sort of thing
we are looking at,” he said.
