On Wednesday the 23rd we held our weekly social here in the Clubhouse. We gathered together in the admin room at four o’clock for an afternoon of poetry and stories. There was a group of ten members in attendance and staff. Before we started speaking some light background music was put on to set the mood, with this done the tales began. One of our members read a heartfelt piece about his childhood and growing up while an other recited poetry he had written as did another lady in our group. There were even film reviews of the Star Wars movie. Those of us who did not have something pre planned spoke about our hobbies or trips. It was great fun to listen to people speak as their enthusiasm shone through. Finally there was a surprise treat at the end of the social as boxes of ice creams were brought out and shared with the group, a welcome thing on such a hot day. The event was successful and enjoyed by all.
