The Older Women’s Network (OWN) QLD in Caboolture is inviting ladies who find themselves in later walks of life, to join its meetings, getting together to network, learn new things and have a laugh and good time.

This government funded social group is part of a wider, inclusive network, aiming to support the needs and interests of older women by providing local connections.

OWN Caboolture Group Convenor, Gwen, says the OWN provides an important community opportunity for ladies looking for something to do.

“I became involved when I saw an advert in the newspaper and was curious so went along and was warmly welcomed,” Gwen told The Sentinel.

“There are many laughs during the meetings. “It’s a happy time.”

The group meets twice a month. On the first Thursday of each month at 10.15am they hold a meeting with a speaker at Sports Central Caboolture, on Cnr Hasking Street and Beerburrum Road.

On the third Thursday of the month, the group partakes in social activities, which can include taking the train to Brisbane to see the gardens or a gallery; watch a movie at the local cinema; or have a coffee and chat at a local café.

Gwen and all the women in OWN QLD, Caboolture, invite any interested ladies to come along and join in on the fun.

This includes women from all walks of life; home-makers, those near retirement or retired.

“Our message to the community is: don’t stay home alone, come along as our guest and meet us, we may be just what you need in your life,” she said.
