Last Meeting: 2018 Christmas Dinner

Some might say it was a full house but everyone certainly enjoyed it!  The highlight was the 2nd PHF for John Terris (featured below) but another humorous episode of Ron Hunter's life with Aunty Gladys of Eketahuna was once again enjoyed - and yes, he assured us that there is more to tell!


Following another excellent meal from Chalet Caterers, crooner Steve Carlin provided us excellent entertainment, singing a number of well-known popular songs, including some Christmas classics.

Thanks to everyone who were involved in making the evening a success.

I stopped believing in Santa Claus when my mother took me to see him in a department store, and he asked for my autograph." ~ Shirley Temple

Christmas past and present

For many of us born in the Northern Hemisphere a summer Christmas takes a bit of getting use to. In the UK, where I come from, Christmas is usually a time of short days and cold temperatures being close to the mid-winter solstice.
