Hello fellow members.

 

I am sorry that there has been a gap with newsletters. Life has been a bit too hectic for me recently: I have spent two sessions with my sister in Australia who is terminally ill. My other sister is with her this month, and I will be going back again later in the year. As a result of these trips I missed the last Club day and recent playouts so I was unable to give you any news.

 

The good news is that hall is currently being painted by a professional contractor partly paid by a grant from the Eastern and Central Community Trust.

 

Committee meeting

The committee meeting this month was again quite brief: there was only the financial report and the discussion about the Taradale Raid this weekend.

 

Taradale raid this SATURDAY 14TH September.

Taradale arrives any time after 11.30. We are expecting up to 30 people on their bus.

I recommend Club members be there by 11.00 or earlier if possible for helping with setting up the hall, greeting the visitors and getting the lunch on the tables.

Show will commence at 1.30.

Lunch arrangements: Jim and Liz will provide 4 different soups, and there will be bread rolls to go with it.

Raffles there will be two raffle prizes. If a Taradale visitor wins he or she will be given the choice of a $25 voucher or the fancy prize that Dallas is going to assemble (which might be a bit awkward on the bus).

Uniforms to be worn.

No entry or lunch fee, but please bring the usual plate for afternoon tea, and be ready to spend up large on the raffle

 

 

Cheers

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.

 

Programme

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 date.

I am hoping to get a special event going for July as well.

 

Committee meeting

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. 

 

April concert

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!)
