Lennoxville Golden Age Club
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.
