It was a smaller than usual group of folks who came by to our annual picnic, but as always, there was plenty of animated "bat-cheet", friendly challenges across the carom board, a round of bingo, a treasure hunt for the kids, and a picnic table groaning under the weight of a selection of goodies which everyone tucked into with gusto! Congratulations to Maritama Vint, ably assisted by hubby James, for their "research" skills that won them the prize for our quiz contest! Lynn D'Souza went home, jingling a few extra Loonies in her pocket as a result of her bingo win. Our skilled chai-wallahs, Freda and Brian D'Souza seved up very welcome hot 'cuppa-teas' to all our picnickers.
I'd also like to take this opportunity of thanking all you folks who have renewed your membership of the Club for 2016. Fifteen dollars a year isn't much in terms of individual donations, but it helps with keeping the website in good standing, and we do save a bit on not having to employ a webmaster as I bumble along with updates whenever time permits! More than anything else however, your contribution is appreciated as a gesture of moral support for a little Club with scant cash in our kitty. Your presence at functions like our picnic and at various lunch get togethers is also a big morale booster and makes all our efforts worthwhile.
Here are a few pictures that I took, and I think Jacquie will be sending me some more later on, so stay tuned...
