Reports for July 27 Jul Our Anniversary Lunch at Steeples Hotel, Mornington, was quite a success. I believe there were a lot of lovely comments and some very positive feedback given to President Joan about the day. Congratulations to the 5 ladies that had the $25 lucky door prize tickets. Also, a huge “thank you” to Bernadette for making the gift envelopes; they were just so beautiful. I can’t wait for November when Bernadette is going to teach us how to make beautiful cards like the ones she made for the lucky number prizes at the Anniversary Lunch. It will be just in time for Christmas! Those of us who saw Denise Drysdale at the RSL’s Morning Melodies Christmas in July luncheon had a fabulous morning. She was just like she was 30 years ago on IMT, had hardly changed at all. She singled out our Joan Clough to comment on Joan’s hair, then, when she found out Joan would be celebrating her 96th birthday on 27th August she got Joan up to take a bow!
