Christmas in July Lunch 21st July 2016

We celebrated Christmas in July Lunch at the Old Courthouse Cleveland.    A happy group of 86 descended on the restaurant after a nice morning tea break on the Manly foreshore.  A very special time was had by all, enjoying each other’s company.  Santa paid us a visit and surprised us with the lovely gifts beautifully made by the talented duo of Val and Annette.  The restaurant served a tasty main course followed by some very delicious desserts and tea and coffee.   Lucky door prizes and raffle prizes were drawn at the lunch.  Special Thanks goes to all those who contributed to make it a lovely day out.

Branch Meeting 14th June 2016

At JULY’S BRANCH MEETING we celebrated Bastille Day with an excellent speaker, Jean-Michel Ruinard, who teaches the French language at Alliance Française de Brisbane.  Jean-Michel talked about the history of Bastille Day and how it is celebrated in modern day France.  Jean-Michel and Jacques Bounin had the enviable task of choosing a winner in both the ladies and gentlemen field in the dress ups.  There were delicious nougat prizes for the President’s encouragement award.  Everyone looked fantastic in their costumes and colours of France.  It really was a lot of fun.   

Hoe Down 25th June

Saturday 25 June was the date for the Hoedown charity event.  On a cold Saturday evening, clad in beanies, scarves, jackets and some rugs, all gathering around the hot fires and drinking delicious warm soup we enjoyed a great night.   The entertainment included some really good dancers who had practiced their steps and were thoroughly enjoying themselves.  Keith Dunn our entertainer for the evening was so good to listen to and sing-a-long to music we were all familiar with.  Tucking into the sausages and beans for our main course and still finding space for a delicious warm dessert.   Around 80 people joined in all the fun to support this fun event.  Special thanks to the Comerford Family for their great support and big thank you to our Committee and other volunteers who worked tirelessly to ensure everything went well on the night.
