Senga Imrie

Your $20.00 subscription is now due. If you pay by the 30th November 2011 your supper ticket will be cheaper.

Dr Marion Taylor

We were delighted to hear Dr Marion Taylor tell us about her book Livingstone ‘s Hospital and to listen to Senga Imrie on her accordion and Ian’s Burns slot, at our last meeting .

We have been asked to help with some Scottish input to the Waverley Church Centenary. Bill has made a haggis and some of us are going up there on the 19th. The Burns supper has an interesting programme so be sure to get your ticket and take advantage of the cheaper price before Christmas .

Our November meeting promises to be an interesting afternoon. Ladies a plate please - gentlemen a gold coin thank you.
