HOROWHENUA SAVAGE CLUB NEWSLETTER
Hello fellow members.
2019 Opening Concert
Some of us were a wee bit rusty – particularly my attempt at Scarborough fair, but we persevered, got
through all of the verses and no-one died. Dorothy and Hazel were memorable as was the work of Jim and Tommy once they got going. Liz gave us some more verses from her Levin poem as well as accompanying Charlie down the river on a Sunday afternoon. That was
a first for her and it went well – good on you Liz. Dallas gave her the poem about a fly who eventually got its come-uppance. We had two old favourites from Graham at the end.
There are some changes
to the year’s programme that was in the last newsletter. The August event will be another inwards raid – this time from Masterton - but we have not set the date yet. It will NOT be 10 August – the hall has a private booking for that
I am hoping to get a special event going for July as well.
The first committee meeting of the year was quite brief: there was only the financial report (the club funds are ok), some
minor maintenance, and the year’s programme to discuss.
We are working on the following songs for next month. Have a look on You tube for them- Walking my baby back home; How About You;
You made me love you; Que Sera Sera; Paper Roses; Happy Talk; I whistle a happy tune. (That is seven, we need a spare in case we struggle with one of them during our practices!)
