Hello fellow members.
final club day for the year is on 10th of November, let’s see if we can make it another one to remember. Break out the best thing you did this year and get in touch with me to book your place on the programme. (3672239). The choir has
selected 5 of the best from this year plus an old favourite.
I am planning to have a major clear out of the lean to over the Christmas break including a reduction to about one quarter of the current stock of garments and hats etc. If there
are any items that you donated and would like to have back please collect them over the next three weeks. After that I will sort out what is to be kept and the ‘discards’ will be available for you to select anything you would like to keep as a
Our October concert had the smallest audience ever even though there were several newcomers. We had apologies from Norma, Jack, Maureen, Tommy, Rosemary, Dorothy, Peter and Tony so we were well down on our regulars.
Fortunately Hazel came along on very short notice and gave us two splendid piano items. The first was a Brahms Prelude and although I didn’t hear what the second was, it was pretty good stuff. We also had Lesley Anne with two lovely songs sung
accapella. Sue with her Ukulele gave us three songs (Blue Suede Shoes, Green Door and Frankie and Johnny) and I accompanied her on my guitar, doing an occasional bit of vocal back up.
From our members we the choir with audience support in the
opening and closing brackets followed by Charlie with ‘Cruising Down the River’. Beverley accompanied herself with ‘Vespers’ (Christopher Robin is saying his prayers) and “People”. She didn’t use a microphone and she
was singing towards the piano yet she was audible throughout the hall so she obviously has a wonderfully powerful voice. Great work Beverly. Graham used the CD player to accompany his songs, but he had to admit that the first was a bit too highly keyed. We
have all been there buddy. The second was well within his range. Jim had two brackets – the first being two songs with his Saxophone ‘Arrivederci Roma’ and ‘Bye Bye Blackbird’ and the second bracket of two with his guitar
‘Baby Blue’ and ‘King of the Road’. Evelyn won the raffle for a supermarket voucher and Charlie won a block of chocolate with the winning door ticket.
And now for the serious stuff - the Annual General
Firstly if you look at the date on your membership card – don’t - because it is wrong. I am going to Brisbane in the middle of November for my nephew’s wedding where I am expected to say a few words, so I won’t
be here for the traditional third Tuesday, and the committee have agreed to defer it until TUESDAY 27TH NOVEMBER AT 7:30 PM at the Savage Club hall. Our Christmas dinner will be at the Cobb and Co at 5:00 that
