What a wonderful closing night we had made special  with  our Dominion President Ken Ham, his wife Karenne and delightful 5 year old granddaughter Lexi  visiting our Hapu,  Lexi won our hearts as most of us are grandmothers  we all were amazed at how well behaived  this well girl was and seemed to enjoy her night out with her Nana and Grandad. 

Our Korero was great and we all enjoyed Kens playing on his accordion, what a great team effort, well done Eltham members.  Long service badges were handed to Allen Southey (50 years) Zeno Hospenthal (25 years) Unice Johns (20 years) (Gavin Clark 15years).

Hi everyone,

 

Hope that you are all fit and well and have enjoyed the past few days with the lovely sun warming us up, I have noticed that the lawns and weeds are beginning to grow, so its time to get outdoors and start gardening, guys  have you got you spuds in yet, it seems that a lot of people have so its  new spuds for Christmas Dinner

 

We have had a busy few weeks, the raid to Hasting was a great weekend and all enjoyed catching up with each other and with our friends in Hastings.  The show went well and on our way home we had a look around the shop at Norsewood, jumpers were brought woolie gloves, singlets, socks and beanies, one of our members purchased a wood thingy really nice and she informs me that it looks great in her garden.

 

The concert was an overwhelming success with 60 people attending, the hall was rocking with enthusiasm from those attending and Colleen was approached to maybe have 2 per year, and $5.00 per head this a boost for  our finances. For those of our members who participated  give yourselves a huge pat on the back.

 

We have 2 practices left  before closing night so those members in items please attend if possible, Closing night is on the 6th October. We have 26 sitting down to our evening meal so please have your money ready to pay Richard, dinner will commence at 5.30 pm cost per head will be $20.00.

 

We have been approached to do a 1and half hour spot of entertainment for the Stratford Ambulance Station Rebuild on

6th November, all agreed that is a great cause, a service that most will require at some time, so we are happy to support this.   We have 2 practice schedule for this 23RD AND 30TH OCTOBER SO PLEASE IF YOUR WANT TO BE IN THIS CONCERT BE AT BOTH OF THESE PRATICES.

 

Our Christmas Party will be held on 8th December at 5.30 bring  along a Pot Luck Dish and  Secret Santa pressie plus BYO IF NEEDED, 

A couple of fun games have been organised and then we can  all have a good old fashion chat with each other.

 

AGM – WILL BE HELD TUESDAY 26TH NOVEMBER COMMENCING AT 7.30 PM.  EVERYONE WELCOME.

 

LITTLE BILLY IS HOME PRACTISING HIS VIOLIN EVERYTIME HE STARTS PLAYING A TUNE, THE DOG LIFTS ITS HEAD AND STARTS HOWLING PAINFULLY,   WHEN BILLY STOPS PLAYING THE DOG STOPS HOWLING.   AS SOON AS BILLY STARTS PLAYING ANOTHER TUNE, THE DOGS STARTS UP AGAIN.   AFTER A HALF HOUR OF SCREECHING AND HOWLING, DAD HAS HAD ENOUGH.   HE STOMPS ACROSS TO BILLY AND SAYS ‘FOR GOODNESS SAKE, CAN YOU PLEASE TRY AND FIND A PIECE OF MUSIC THAT THE DOG DOSE’NT KNOW.

 

Cheers Patsy.
