Senior Citizens Our Jan. 22nd meeting was our AGM, ably chaired by our minister. There were only seven members present, it was good that our guild ladies were there Eleanor took the minutes Barbara played the piano for our Burn's song Quiz and Kate was referee for the Burn's general knowledge one. Whispered answers from Mr Mc Beath and Mr Boyd helped us with our answers. It was all in all a very pleasant company, and a successful afternoon.
Our AGM with some encouragement from Donald,and promises from our good friends of there continuing help, we decided to carry on, in the hope that we will recruit some new members.
Our meeting closed on a high note after a lovely afternoon tea thanks to the guild ladies and Rose ,Annie and Betty our T Ladies. Last but not least thanks to our gentle men friends for tidying up the tables.
5th Feb. I was so thankful the weather was fair as our speaker had a fair way to travel. Irene McKenzie worked with the Australian Nursing Service and flying doctors services, her talk was very interesting, and her films made us aware of of the vast distance that is the 'Outback'. Their commitment to their duties must take a lot of courage. Thank you Irene for telling us your story, and the highs and lows of life in Alice Springs.
Our members were increased by some good friends, thank you all for showing an interest in our club and hope we will see you again soon. As usual we had a lovely cup of tea and cakes, and had time to talk and ask questions of Irene. Again thanks to every one who helped in any way to the success of the afternoon. Special thanks to Mr Boyd.
