Weight Reduction Club of Geebung Day
Eevi Ryan's Story 30 Years - presented with 30 year service medallion.
I joined WRC of Geebung Day Inc. at Piccadilly St Geebung for the second time in in March 1986.
I first joined in 1980 when I arrived in Aspley to live. I was welcomed by Joyce Welfare and her team. Joyce started the club from her home on Ellison Rd and when it grew rapidly she moved it to Piccadilly St. I needed to lose weight and lost it in 12 weeks and so decided to leave.
Six years later I was back and from then on I decided to never leave. From Piccadilly St we returned to Joyce's home until we found our present premises at the Uniting Church, Mayflower St and have been there ever since.
Our club has been a wonderful support to me throughout the years. I have graduated but it is difficult to remain on an even keel. Most of us need the support and guidance from clubs like ours.
Joyce Welfare is our Founder and without people like Joyce many of us are lost. I thank everyone who has helped me and is still helping me through my endeavours.
