So nice to see so many of you this week. The speakers were very sweet, if a little slow! But I am sure you agree that without volunteers like Robin and Warren the Country would be in a sorry state. It was a lovely meeting.
If you are not able to attend next month’s meeting can you please let me know as the speaker needs to know how many cupcakes to bring along. She is from Cakie Wakie and will be demonstrating cupcake decoration and I assume we will all get a go too!
I am sure you all join me in wishing Joyce a very speedy recovery following her recent op! Get well soon Joyce.
