“New normal” Club life continued throughout October into November.

Our annual Quiz Night took place on 20th October, under the direction of quiz master Peter Melville. The winning team (by a small margin) were awarded a case of wine and the runners-up complained “their answers had been correct; the questions were wrong”!  

Lentune Ladies met for lunch on 3rd November and enjoyed a fascinating talk on Working with Children with Severe Visual Impairment by teacher Gaynor Tinsdale. Gaynor’s talk included an opportunity for members to personally experience the use of Braille.

Lentune Probus men met for lunch on 8th November, when speaker Rosemary Legrand gave a well-illustrated talk about Spring in Japan. Rosemary outlined the cultural differences she experienced, during an extended visit to this fascinating country and described the many gardens she visited, the flowers and trees there and the efforts made to maintain them to perfection.

On 12th November we held our popular Annual Dinner at South Lawn Hotel, attended this year by 64 members and guests. The venue, food and entertainment were highly praised. Background music on arrival and throughout the dinner was provided by pianist Mark Bussel, followed by dancing to tribute group The Two Beatles. The evening, concluded with a stand-up, arms waving, enthusiastic rendition of Hey Jude, was judged to have been a great success.

For longer than most members can recall, payment to attend club luncheons and social events has been by cheque. No more: we’ve now gone fully digital with the acquisition of a card reader, first used at our November meeting.

And there are just 6 weeks to Christmas.
