NEWSLETTER DECEMBER 2019  No 2

Hi everyone,

Hope by now  that you have sent Santa your Christmas Wish List, want be long and he will be on his way.

 

Those of our members who have been unwell hopefully you are now all on the mend and will be back to full health very soon.

 

It is with a great deal of sorrow that we learned of the passing of Keith Jackson a pivotal member of the Waitara Savage and entertainment Group and Jim Hotter a very loyal member of the Stratford Club.  Both these members will be missed by their respective clubs and by Savagery as a whole,  Keith was a wonderful pianist and Jim along with his brother Lenny entertained us all on many occasion with the playing of toe tapping tunes on their accordions.  Our sympathies go to their respective famiies..

 

Our entertaining at Stratford to assist with the St John Rebuild was a great success and enjoyed by all of those people who attended, we finished off with a great meal at the Fern Bistro, these social gatherings are great and bring us together as a family and a really good excuse for a  chit chat.

 

Our next date to remember is the Christmas Party on Sunday 8th December please bring a Secret Santa Pressie, BYO And Pot luck main and desert, this should be a whole lot of fun, so come along and enjoy.

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).
