The inclement weather didn’t faze the 51 members and friends aboard the Clarence River ferry last Thursday evening for the twilight time cruise. Everyone on board enjoyed the tasty buffet, the company and the entertainment supplied by ‘Full Circle’.  If you mislaid some property on the ferry, please contact Laura to reclaim it.

Next in the film series of Gilbert and Sullivan, is ‘HMS Pinafore’. This greatly loved operetta will be presented by Doug Towner.  If you are interested in attending on Wednesday night October 9, please contact Laura O’Brien on [email protected]

The Gardening meeting on Friday September 27 attracted 48 attendees. Trish and Ros judged flowers and pot plants at Lawrence Show on Saturday September 22 and both were impressed with the quantity and quality of entries despite the dry conditions. There is the possibility of a trip to Bonville Broms and two nurseries/gardens on Saturday October 26, the day after October meeting.

Croquet continues to be well supported on both Tuesday and Friday.

What a busy time the last quarter of this year is going to be for members of A Little Bit of Culture. Next weekend (October 5) we head up to QPAC for the matinee performance of Muriel’s Wedding. There are still tickets available if you or your friends/family would like to join us.

Fancy a high tea in the garden at the Clarence Valley Muster? We are heading down there on Thursday 24 and will enjoy the entertainment following the high tea. Tickets are $25.

Our outing to the Saraton Grafton for ‘Afternoon at the Proms’ on Sunday October 27 is fully booked with 50 members and friends looking forward to another great afternoon of entertainment.

On November 16 we travel back up to QPAC for the matinee performance of Chicago. This outing is booked out but I could put your name on a waiting list.

We will also be going down to the Criterion in Grafton to see Spamalot this month. I am taking names now for that. I am in the middle of making arrangements for that one. 

To celebrate the end of the year we will be having a Christmas Party on Tuesday December 3 at the Brooms Head Community Hall. It will be the same as last year with a charge of $10pp to cover expenses, everyone to bring a contribution for lunch and a secret Santa present to the cost of $10.

Our Tuesday movie/lunch days are always well attended and thanks to Debbie at Yamba Cinema, we have seen some wonderful movies. After the movie it’s time for lunch and a chat at Bean Scene café. If you would like to join in on any of our outings please contact Patricia Kan on [email protected]
