Don's March Newsletter

February Newsletter

PRESIDENT’S NEWSLETTER.  -  February 2019.

The year has certainly got off to an excellent start, and hopefully will continue through the coming months. 

Our first activity was the combined picnic with the Jazz Club, held at Rangiotu School grounds on February 10th. About 50 people attended, and it was lovely to see the sun, although I think everyone was thankful for the umbrellas and pergolas to keep under, as well as the shade from the line of trees. It was certainly a change from the rainy day we had last year. The day opened with a set from the swing band 11 a.m. before breaking for lunch. Most people brought their own food, including me, and after I ate my couple of buns, I went into the kitchen only to find that Polly and friends had cooked up meats and salads, which were delicious, I ended up having a large lunch, as did many others, I suspect.

The afternoon was given over to more music from several groups, including a pick-up Dixie combo and A53 David Edge group, Mike Dee family group blues band.

It was a great time, and although 50 odd people were there, it would be even greater if more people could attend next year. I suspect the dismal day last year, plus expectations of a hot day this time may have influenced some people.

 

The February concert is now behind us and I feel it was a great success, with many compliments for the performers. It was certainly an electric programme, ranging from a Neapolitan song, to a sea shanty, and all shades in between. If you want to be a performer, don’t forget to liaise with Peter Elliott. Just remember, for most of us performing is our goal, and doesn’t matter whether you think your talents are too modest, performing in front of friends is usually a good start.

We also inducted Erna Ferry into the club as our latest new member. Welcome Erna and we look forward to further performances in the future.

 

Yesterday, the swing band played at Summerset Retirement Village, giving a lively 2 hour concert to great acclaim. Again the weather was good for us, and thanks to the radio advertising arranged by Summerset, we had a good crowd. I also understand they had a full page ad in the paper as well.

Meantime your committee is working hard in the background. We have already organised an outward raid to Masterton in May, and an inward raid from Hastings in August, and we will keep you up to date on these events.

We are also arranging for the hall to be fully commercially cleaned, including carpets, so bring your sunglasses to the next concert to avoid being dazzled. Keith Jacob has also been toiling away behind the scenes, water blasting the outside of the hall, as well as some sanding and painting of windows, in the supper hall, so our thanks to Keith.

Finally, I would remind those that haven’t paid their subs yet, to please get them in, and avoid Nancy and Peter doing a good cop/bad cop routine (I’m not saying which is which – but as the Hulk used to say “don’t make me angry – you won’t like me when I’m angry!”

I hope to see you all at the March Concert, so until then, keep calm, and carry on.
