Yesterday the TDN Social Centre had a trip to the beautiful Tasmanian Golf Club and had one of their newest members have "the best birthday" he has ever had!! They had lots of laughs and friendships were enjoyed by all. On the return trip they were able to have a look at the Queen Mary 2, they all plotted how they could stow away 🙂
