Twenty-one club members got together for this year’s Christmas lunch at Café Thyme on 5 December, a relaxing occasion full of chat and good cheer.
The weather was just a little too windy for the less staunch among us, so it was inside rather than out.
Thanks to Kristin, Liz H, Loralee, Mandy and Wendy who arrived early to ‘occupy’ inside tables as they became free, and scavenge extra chairs from here and there.
It was really nice to have newer dancers (Bruce, Elizabeth J, Helen T and Nancy) joining regular Christmas lunch attendees (Aline and John, Deborah S, Désirée and John, Janet, John M, Moira B and Pat). A pleasure also to catch up with Joan who’s not been able to dance this year, and to see Liz R and Sandra along for the first time.
As always, it was a great opportunity to find out a bit more about each other’s lives outside dancing, and to eat, drink and be merry. Loralee managed to get photos of pretty much all of us on the day, a great feat and much appreciated.
Thanks to café proprietors Jackie and Livi who looked after us and made us welcome, despite our taking over half the café and more than our fair share of the chairs!
If you couldn’t make it this time, we hope to see you next year.
