It is lovely to see some familiar faces beginning to come back to the island for the winter. You were not forgotten while you were away. It is amazing how conversations seem to be picked up as if it was only a few days since we last saw you all!
Monday is going to be the first meeting of our Canasta Group so don't forget to meet at Fresh at 10.00am if you want to learn this card game. Harriet is now on island and willing to teach you all. Happy playing!
We held our Monthly Lunch at Peppers this week, which was well supported, and we all had a good time. The servers were very attentive, and the food was great.
The Christmas Lunch will take place on Thursday 14th December. This is a week earlier than our normal Lunches and it will mean that we will not be holding our usual Bowling Group in December. Please put this date change in your diaries. We felt that by the 21st of December many ladies may have left the island or be too busy with other commitments to attend our Lunch.
It is going to be a fun event. The menu is printed in the Newsletter so you can make you food choice before you arrive. This will enable you to have more time to chat with your friends. The price of the Lunch includes a welcome drink and a glass of wine. The ILC will be making a small contribution towards the cost of the meal as well as paying the grats. There will be raffle prizes at the event as well as a White Elephant table if you would like to take part.
Let us not forget the best Breakfast of the Year! Our Christmas Breakfast Bingo. We can't forget this event. It is the Breakfast that everyone looks forward to. Held in Patty's home. (Thank you Patty) A wonderful Breakfast is supplied, we have great games of Bingo, and we even win Prizes. What more could we want? Don't forget a donation for the Food Bank if you have anything to spare. The donations all look so pretty around the bottom of Patty's Christmas Tree. Please push the RSVP button.
Our Membership Fee of $35 is due on the 1st of January but if you see me and want to pay now you can. I am usually around Fresh for the Mahjong sessions or at the Breakfasts or Lunches. If you don't make those events, then please email me and we can arrange to meet, or you can pay by bank transfer if that is easier for you. Of course, I would much rather see you in person!
Please don't forget the change of date of the Happy Hour. It would be great if we could have a great turn out for the festive party. Please RSVP.
I will be travelling next weekend so may not be able to publish a Newsletter so please don't forget to RSVP for events for both weeks. Especially the Mahjong, Needlecrafters, Book Club and Happy Hour.
I hope you all enjoy what is left of your weekend. Please check out the full newsletter for all the details and RSVP links for upcoming events.
