Dovenby WI September 2009
After a short business meeting, President Diana Clark welcomed guests from Cleator, Moresby and Westnewton WIs to Dovenby's 38th Birthday.
She then introduced guest speaker pianist Susan Allison to play and a talk about 'Songs of the Musicals'. She gave a potted history beginning with operettas from the 19th Century followed by musicals through the years up to the present time, interspersing her talk with popular songs from the shows. The evening ended with members singing a medley of songs, including some from the 'Sound of Music'. This was followed by a musical quiz which was won by Sheila Wilkinson.
A vote of thanks for a very entertaining and enjoyable evening was given by Nita Eubank.
There were six raffle prizes, two one by Mary Foster, and Geraldine Baldwin and the other four won by the visitors.
The competition, 'An Evening Bag or Musical Box' was won by Edna Brough.
The October meeting is the AGM, and will be a pie and pea supper.
Dovenby WI is always happy to see new faces. Meetings are held on the second Thursday of the month at Bridekirk Dovenby School commencing at 7:30pm.
