|Our Welsh Society Annual luncheon meeting today
was preceded by over an hour of singing beautiful
Welsh hymns and songs.
Our group ranged in age from 9 to 98, and we had
a lovely time. Most of us don't speak Welsh but
John Garrison is a patient teacher and he keeps
trying to teach us the pronunciation, but we sing far
more lustily when we switch to English.
Amy took a photo of our group singing today, Bob in
front, has learned all the Welsh music and loves it.
Lunch at Glenridge was delicious, too. Let's hope
that more of you in the Sarasota area will join us
next year, or even earlier when we celebrate St.
David's Day on March 1!
|Even with a short Annual Meeting we
accomplished a lot. We welcomed new
officers Maureen and Phil Jones as
Corresponding Secretaries while expressing
thanks to David J Rees for his years of
secretarial service. Meg succeeds him
We heard beautiful memorials for Eudora,
Martha, and Clara by Bob Griffiths, our
Chaplain, and passed the by-laws changes we
submitted to the membership which Don
Hughes and Amy Ferrell worked on.
We had a great time singing, thanks to John
and Mona, as well as socializing and eating.
|Everyone is welcome to attend any of our Committee Meetings as members or guests of members. We
need your thoughts on activities you may enjoy so we can arrange events and future activities.
Today's meeting was focusing on the St David's Day Banquet regarding menu and entertainment. The
venue for the Banquet is The Laurel Oaks, Sarasota. A recent article in the Herald Tribute featured the
chefs there. Please read their article, you'll be impressed:
