Our S.C club has had some new life injected into it. Mrs Marilyn Stewart and friends are really trying hard to breathe some new life into us.The last two meetings were excellent and enjoyed by all.
On the 16th Oct it was a games afternoon, very well supervised, no cheating allowed, I think snakes and ladders was the favourite, quite hilarious, we were ready for our afternoon tea. Our friends in the guild are very kind to us and we are thankful for their generosity.
On the 30th Oct. it was our Hallowe'en Party. For this we asked freinds to join us and had a good response, so it had a real party atmosphere. There were some weird and wonderful witches there and we even had a Leprauchan visit us. We were transported to child hood dooking for apples and action songs among other games. It was a great time and have to thank all the good people who helped to make it so special. Thanks to all our gentlemen friends there is always a welcome for you.
Last but not least thanks to guild members for our the extra special cakes and to our own ladies who served our tea.
I hope our guests enjoyed themselves and tell their friends we are a lively club, but need new members to keep it so.
Our 18th of Jan. meeting was well advertised, but still there was only nine members there.This was very disappointing, as our minister and our elder Mr Boyd and Marilyn Stewart attended to give us some advice and encouragement on keeping the club open. After some discussion it was decided we would carry on with help from them. As usual we enjoyed our afternoon tea, thanks to our Guild friends and our team of T- ladies.
The 2nd Oct was a very busy day for us, we were invited to Houston Primary School to celebrate Harvest Festival. We certainly have a school to be proud of. The choir was excellent and it was so good to hear so many children singing harvest hymns. Our minister needed all his skills to keep up with the pupils.
After our morning excitement, our afternoon was equally enjoyable. We are really grateful for all who came along to make it a such a super time. Mr Donelly and his Ladies certainly gave us a full and varied programme, his Brain teasers made us all use our brains. An extra bonus to our day was to welcome our friend Marjorie back among us.
As usual our goodies from our Guild was greatly appreciated as was the help from our guests in tidying up. Thank you all.
A short meeting afterwards resolved a few problems which we hope will bring in some new members. Watch this space.
