A new update on all our activities over the past few weeks:
Some of our members have been on holiday, some of us had good weather, some of us had cold, wet weather. Those members left behind continued with supporting our chosen charities for this year, namely 1st Responders and Mercy Ships. we have been able to present Ian Rogers from 1st Responders with an additional donation for their sterling work locally at our "cuppa" informal meeting recently.
We have also had an entertaining afternoon with Ken Atherton regaling us on the history of the comical postcard adding some interesting anecdotes along the way.
We had our annual walk along the River Parrett and back through Langport raising a sum for the Food Bank.
We are at present in the throes of organising our big birthday celebrations next February when we will be 70 years old, having been "born" of the Rotary club, for wives of members in the days when Rotary was men only.
Next month sees the start of our new Inner Wheel year when we have a change of President and President-elect together with any other officer changes. I am afraid you will get to hear from me for another year!
Remember, we meet every 2nd Monday at Langport Arms at 12md for lunch and our meeting (which is quite informal) followed by an activity of some sort and then every 4th Monday for our "cuppa" meeting hosted by a member. You can contact me, Dorothy, on 252648 or email: email@example.com if you would like to know more.
