ELTHAM SAVAGE CLUB DECEMBER NEWSLETTER.

 

Hi everyone,

Hope that this finds you all fit and well and have that Christmas tree anD decorations sorted.  Its hard to believe that Christmas is just around the corner and a new year is fast approaching, although the way the weather is at the moment one would be forgiven to think that we are still in Winter mode.  Its been a funny year this year interrupted of course by Covid, hopefully the vaccine that they have developed will be successful in combating this virus and saving people lives all around the world.

Our club has had a successful year with our Koreros all being well attended and thanks to all performers who have contributed to this, and to our fellow western Group members who have supported our concerts.   The highlight was closing night, where our guests were treated to a great meal and items, we also were proud to host the installation of Our member Bill Oram as our new Dominion President, and had 8 past Dominion Presidents with us to also celebrate our 75th Anniversary, an evening that want be forgotten in a hurry.

 

The AGM was held on 24th November,and at best it was a little disappointing in respect of members who attended :

The following members will be our committee  for 2021 :

RANGATIRIA, Colleen, ARAKI, Richard, TREASURER Colleen, SECRETARY Patsy, TOHUNGAS Margaret, Shirley and Gavin, STAGE MANAGERs jointly shared by Gavin and Ivan, COMMITTEE MEMBERS Bill and Peggy, KITCHEN SUPERVISOR Jane.

OPENING NIGHT WILL BE HELD ON 3RD APRIL 2021.

 

KORERO DATES. 1st MAY, 5TH JUNE, 3RD JULY, 7TH AUGUST, 4TH SEPTEMBER AND CLOSING NIGHT 2ND OCTOBER

OUR FIRST COMMITTEE MEETING WILL BE HELD 17TH FEBRUARY, 2021.

Our concert was held on 2nd December, although we maybe lacked quantity of people attending we certainly delivered on quality, all items went off with a bang and the audience joined in singing  and clapped, it was a great afternoon.  A great team effort well done to Colleen in organizing a great programme.

A great time was had by everyone at our Christmas party held on 6th Colleen sent me the following report  :

What a wonderful evening our Christmas party was.  We sat down to a fantastic array of food which was devoured enthusiastically by us all.  Many thanks to all those who toiled in the kitchen getting our meal ready and cleaning up after.  The greens were running too fast to play our annual golf tournament but Peggy’s game was a huge hit.

Our musical talents were superbly displayed with a great variety of 

Instruments playing Christmas Carols.   Santa’s visit was very exciting  -when he arrived with a sack of gifts for us all.  Peggy was quite overwhelmed to be selected as Santa’s helper.  Many thanks to to Gavin, Bill anfd Shirley for decorating our tables and Christmas Tree.

 

Well that about winds up our year and despite the interruptions experienced with Lockdowns etc it has been a very  enjoyable year for us all.

MayI on behalf of our team wish you all and your families and those of our fellow Savage and Orphans Clubs members around the Country  a safe and happy Christmas and a happy and most of all a healthy 2021,

and look forward to renewing old friendships and making new friends in 2021.

Best wishes to you all from  Patsy on behalf of our Eltham Team.
