Some of the members raising a glass to 2016
Members met up at the Club on Monday 19th December for the annual Xmas Social Evening, the last event of 2016. As last year, instead of the usual seasonal songs, the sound of 60's music filled the hall and got everyone's feet tapping to the beat.
A full programme of entertainment followed the excellent Buffet supplied by the members, which everyone enjoyed.
Teams were formed for the popular Twenty Questions brain teasing Quiz. Team C, consisting of Christine, Nigel, Bob and Cherrie recorded the most correct answers and had first dip into Santa's sack of prizes.
This was followed by the "Print of the Year" competition in which everybody voted for their favourite image on display. This year's winner was new member Bob Cramp.
Next came the Raffle and once again, many of the prizes had been donated by members.
The last event of the evening was the Auction, when the Chairman picked up his gavel and tried to sell off everything in sight, in aid of Club funds. This is always a lot of fun and raised a healthy sum as well.
In summing up, David thanked everyone for their generosity in providing the buffet, prizes and donated items for the Auction. Wishing everybody present, a very merry Christmas, he said, it had been a fitting way to say goodby to 2016. Everyone leaving for the holidays in very high spirits.
