Seymour’s annual Oaks Day Lunch was hosted by the Lions Club of Seymour/Goulburn and the Seymour Cancer Council Volunteer Group. The event raised funds for Karingal Hostel and cancer research. Marnie Sloane from Seymour Volunteer Group welcomed guests and the compere was Lion Yvonne Mumford.
The major Oaks Day raffle prize of $1250 voucher for Lifestyle Portraits was won by John Hyland of Avenel. Second prize of $200 voucher for Goulburn River Cruise and Mitchelton lunch went to John Blackwell and third prize of Christmas table runner went to a truck driver named Scotty. So the blokes scooped the raffle prizes although none attended the lunch.
Seymour Bowling Club was decorated with fresh roses so there was plenty of colour on the tables and in the fashions.
Guest fashion judge Anne Thompson entertained the crowd with stories of her research into fashion.
The Sassy Shoes prize donated by Seymour Old Post Office was won by Judy Jones. The Best Hat prizes donated by Brenda Lebidka were won by Maureen Prudden and Mary Evans. Best Dressed prizes donated by Leading Edge Jewellery went to Jill Harvey and runner-up was Ines Trento.
In the alternative fashion stakes, the Swimmers theme this year was the Spring Racing Carnival. Each hat displayed a race event and special mention must go to Jenny Micklethwait whose Turnbull Stakes was the talking point of the group.
How do you get a bull to turn on a pedestal of steaks? You had to be there to see it!
Congratulations to everyone who supported this years Oaks Day Lunch.
