Christmas Club Night 4th December 2018

What a wonderful Christmas year end Club Night to end a great year of Club events both at our Club Rooms, Coffee Days at Lifestyle Villages, and, Coffee Days at members homes.

For our year end Christmas Club Night, we were entertained most magnificently by two of our senior playing members, Jeanette Harding and Taka Iida. Jeanette brought along her Korg Pa3X whilst Taka brought along his Yamaha Stagea keyboard.

Before the refreshments break, we held our Christmas Hamper Raffle. Due to the generosity of members donations we had 11 buckets of goodies to be won. For our refreshments break we were treated to wonderful Japanese style cream cakes (kindly brought along by Taka Iida) and Christmas cake, biscuits and mince pies. A big thank you to our Secretary, Delyse Whorwood, who organized the catering and the Christmas Hampers.

After the tea break, we were treated to a magnificent concert by Ben Fernandez on our Clavinova piano and accompanied by Rick Roff on vocals and trumpet. Both are International entertainers and they did not disappoint!

All in all, a great evenings entertainment and a wonderful way to finish our 2018 activity year. The Committee takes this opportunity to wish all our members, visitors and observers of this Web Site a Merry Christmas and a very Happy, Healthy and prosperous New Year.
