A Message from the Chairman (May 2018)
At the April Board Meeting of the Ralli Hall Lunch and Social Club we were delighted to confer an Honorary Life Presidency on Alan Burke following the appointment of Philip Simon as Chairman. Alan founded the Lunch and Social Club in 2002 and has been a lynchpin of the organisation ever since. He has also been a staunch fundraiser for the club as well as being a bridge tutor and of course, number one bingo caller. We cannot let this occasion pass without acknowledging Alan’s wife Shirley, a long-term volunteer and Alan’s indispensable ‘right hand man’. Alan, we thank and applaud you for all your service: long may it continue.
Israeli Independence Day was a resounding success and The Lunch Club stall was a star attraction with our free latkes, of which there were none left by the end of the evening.
We were also there to recruit new member and volunteers. To help with recruitment, the Lunch Club has a new giant banner on the railings outside Ralli Hall. Do you have any friends who would enjoy a lovely lunch on a Tuesday or Thursday and who would benefit from friendship and socialising?
In the next few weeks we will be starting a choir and are going to have a regular afternoon showing of a popular film as well as holding quiz afternoons. And there will be our outings to Rushfield Plant Centre in June and of course our yearly trip to Eastbourne in August, not forgetting the BBQ at Hyman Fine. Hope you all enjoy this lovely weather.
Until our next report…
