Talwood Men’s Day Out

Talwood Community Hall.

Friday, November 24.

Get your mates together and come along. Kicks off at 12 noon - Refreshments on arrival - Gourmet Burgers for lunch.

Tickets $30 with the proceeds donated to support men’s health.

Guest speaker: Mick Colliss is a gifted story teller with a very funny story to tell.

As a young kid growing up, his dream was to play for Australia.

But he quickly discovered desire is no substitute for ability.

Then finally, at the age of 42, after successive failures at cricket, rugby league, rugby union, surf lifesaving and lawn bowls, he finally discovered a game he can represent Australia in.

Mick is a laugh out loud true story about mateship, having a go and never giving up, no matter what the odds.

Don’t miss hearing his story.
