Welcome and Demonstration EveningOur first face-to-face meeting since before the pandemic! Our President Carolyn welcomed us to our first meeting at our new venue, and we're sure we will feel at home there.
The meeting was a Demonstration Evening with three speeches by experienced members to get us back in the swing and to show our visitors what we do. Brian extolled the virtues of paper, Maura enthralled us with her tales of mistaken identity and Peter looked at how children are named.
Debbie reviewed what we offer - for the benefit of our visitors - and Tracey invited us to take well-known person to a food venue and discuss matters of interest with them over a meal.
