At the Tarvin W.I. AGM in November, Irene Wilkinson was unanimously re-elected as President for the fourth year running. She graciously accepted and was warmly congratulated by Frances Woollam, the presiding election officer, for all the hard work she does for the group.
Following the AGM and election, the speaker for the evening was Ian Lloyd with 'Songs for all Seasons". Ian entertained members with 'Name that Tune' competition and gave a box of eggs as a prize to those who correctly guessed the title. (Ian is the 'Egg Man' who was one of our Speakers last year). Among the many songs he sang were "When I Grow Too Old to Dream"; "Pennies from Heaven"; "The Umbrella Man" and "Just the Way You Look Tonight". A born entertainer he interspersed the singing with a number of jokes and members enjoyed participating in the fun. Members enjoyed tea and coffee and cake sitting chatting with old friends and new, finally ending the evening on quite a high note.
The Date of the next meeting will be Wednesday January 25 at 7.30 pm in the Edna Rose, Tarvin Community Centre where new members and visitors are welcome to come and join us
