U3A Rockhampton’s successful Expo at the Frenchville Sports Club in February Mahjong players showed their support for the Network State Conference by donating $500 to help defray costs of staging the conference in Rockhampton

Mahjong players pay $2 each time they play towards afternoon tea supplies and venue hire. With increasing numbers attending mahjong, any surplus funds at the end of each year is donated to a good cause.
This year, it was decided that excess funds would go towards the Network Queensland Conference and 50th Anniversary celebration!
