Article for Round Up March 2017

Well the year has got off to a great start. Numbers have been steady.

The committee has also planned a lot more special nights so hopefully we find something to your liking during the year.

Already we have had two of those nights. The first was our Down Under Ball to celebrate Australia Day. There was lots of red white and blue along with some green & gold. Thank you to all who dressed the theme. We had some mini pie floaters (party pies in pea & ham soup) with tomato sauce, what an Australian Classic. Thank you to Eddie & Rosalie for organising the pies & soup, in particular the soup was home made by Rosalie. Thank to Anne Tulloch who provided the lamingtons. We also had a sing along with the Sunset Philharmonic. The men sang ‘Click go the Shears’ and the ladies sang ‘I Still Call Australia home’. We are not prepared to say who did better. Les & Milton of course did Australian Songs when calling.

The second night was our pancakes for Shrove Tuesday. Shrove comes from the word ‘Shrive’ meaning to absolve. A popular practice is to consume food (traditionally pancakes) that is sacrificed during the 40 days of lent that follows. Thanks once again to Eddie & Rosalie for organising the Pancakes.

Plans are well under way for our 22nd Birthday in may (see our advertisement). Why not come for dinner? Hope to see you there.
