What a great closing night we had, it was very special time to  welcome all our friends and fellow Savage Club members to our Hapu, it felt like we were all part of a big family gathering.   We had 7 past Dominion Presidents present, accompanied by their wives, and of course our very own new

NEWSLETTER AUGUST, 2020.

 

Hi everyone,

Hope that you are all keeping safe and well now that we are back to Level 2 with Covid it seems as though it may be the norm for a few weeks to come.   It is nice to see the evenings and mornings become a little lighter a sign  spring is in the air.

WESTERN GROUP CONCERT ;

This was an enjoyable night with a full programme, each Club has some great items and it was nice to see our fellow Savage Club members and friends in our hall, each Club give yourselves a pat  on the back. And Eltham members who hosted the night you can have 2 pats on the back.

For our Club we welcomed two new members ::


Valerie Cook – Valerie is a well know figure in the Eltham Community being our Kindergarten teacher back in the day for 26 years. Many of Eltham youngsters went through Eltham Kindy and so did their offspring, Valerie moved away for a few years and has now come back and immersed herself in her favourite persuits, so we look forward to sharing her company and say welcome Valerie to the team here at the Eltham Savage Club.

 

 

Pat Curd – Pat along with his late Wife Annette were former members of both Hawera and  Eltham (15 years in Eltham) and Pat has now rejoined, Pat is being accompanied by Peter and together they make a great pair, their items are always very professional and entertaining, welcome back Pat and we look forward to much more of your wonderful singing.

 

5th September Koroero – shared by Tohungas Shirley and Margaret.

Once again a full programme was enjoyed by all, all items were of a high standard, well done you two, and to all those members who contributed towards the evening.

Due to Covid 19 our public  concert had to be postponed, we are hoping that all going to plan we may be able to re-schedule

Sometime in October, this will discussed at our next meeting.

CLOSING NIGHT _ This is fast approaching, so PLEASE GET YOUR NUMBERS INTO MYSELF OR COLLEEN AS SOON AS AND DON’T FORGET PAYMENT TO BE MADE BEFORE HAND.

 

A man went to visit his 90 year old grandfather,after spending the night his grandfather prepared breakfast for him of bacon and eggs.  He noticed a film like substance on the plate and questioned his grandfather  - are these plates clean? – they are a clean as cold water can get them so carry on eating.

That afternoon wholle eating hamburgers for lunch he noticed more gunge around his plate – so once asked his grandfather are thee plats clean? – I told you before they are as clean as cold water can get them

Later that afternoon he was on his way to have supper with some friends, as he was leaving his grandfather’s dog started to growl and would’nt let him pass so he said Grandpa your dog want let me out –

His  grandfather the proceeded to shout out to the dog

COLDWATER GO LIE DOWN  AND SHUTUP.
