On Wednesday the 6th of April we held our final gathering of the session which was also our AGM. Prior to the business meeting taking place we were entertained by harpist and vocalist Pauline Vallance. Pauline played and sang a selection of Scottish and Irish ballads which we all enjoyed singing along to. After our usual break for light refreshments, thank you ladies, we got on with the business of our AGM. During her report, Isobel announced that our secretary, Nan Hodson, was standing down. Isobel thanked Nan for her support over the years and presented her with a pot plant as a small token of our appreciation. On calling for a volunteer to replace Nan, Barbara Morrison was duly nominated, seconded, accepted and elected. Thank you Barbara. We hope you all have a good summer and we look forward to seeing you all again later in the year.In October the Senior Citizens enjoyed a musical journey around the world expertly done by Mrs Vivienne MacDonald.
