TAKE a look back to 2009 when we first featured this story of a lunch party for Helensburgh senior citizens.

Here's how it appeared in the Advertiser on March 12, 2009.


AROUND 70 senior citizens enjoyed a rip-roaring good time courtesy of the Helensburgh Lions Club recently.

The annual senior citizens lunch party run by the Lions Club was held in the Masonic Hall in West Princes Street and the guests were treated to a slap-up three course meal cooked by two volunteer chefs.

After the meal entertainment was provided by folk group Clydebuilt and Helensburgh vocalist Gordon Hanning who sang a medley of Burns songs.

The afternoon closed with a raffle where everyone was a winner.

A spokesman for the Lions said: “Helensburgh Lions thank the community for their support for the various fund-raising activities that made the event possible.”
