Sherbrooke Record - - CLASSIFIED -

Septem­ber 12 - Mem­bers and guests gath­ered in the Len­noxville United Church hall to be­gin a new sea­son with an af­ter­noon of Mil­i­tary Whist. Five ta­bles of whist and one ta­ble of bridge were played.

Games fin­ished, we gath­ered around the sup­per ta­bles to catch up on the sum­mer events, while en­joy­ing a cup of tea or cof­fee. Sup­per ready, Pat wel­comed everyone back, and asked the bless­ing. Tonight, we en­joyed a won­der­ful meal of roast beef, mashed pota­toes and gravy, peas, car­rots, mush­rooms, caramelized onions, spinach salad with rasp­berry and bal­samic vinai­grette, pick­les, and rolls. Dessert con­sisted of cho­co­late cake with caramel ic­ing and ice cream, tea and cof­fee. Our thanks to both Billy and Raven Hill-peters.

We made wel­come our guests today, Rita Nu­gent and Re­naud Pare, as well as three new mem­bers, Mal­colm Juby, Beatrice Juby and Irene Young.

Pat gave a cer­tifi­cate of Hon­orary Mem­ber­ship to club mem­ber Gisele Len­zen who cel­e­brated her 90th birth­day this sum­mer. Win­ners of Mil­i­tary Whist were: 1st place with 32 flags: Cap­tain Fern La­pointe, Monika Mos­berger, Al­berta Craw­ford, and Irene Young.

Our thanks to the many hands who made the kitchen clean up easy.

A re­minder that mem­ber­ships are due, and they are still $8.00 for the year.
