On Thursday 17th December we had our last monthly meeting of 2015. It was, as all the year’s meetings have been, well attended.
Refreshments, including the much appreciated “non-alcoholic punch”, were provided by Alison Greenwood and her helpers. We must thank Alison not only for the refreshments on Thursday but for providing them throughout the year.
We must thank Myrna Beet and her team for organising the quiz, which was closely contested. So closely contested that four teams finished with the same score (after an objection to one answer, which was overruled). The winners were decided by the time honoured method of drawing lots.
Afterwards there was a presentation by Andrew Gill (The Lanternist). Andrew, who is a member of Burnley U3A, was making a return visit; he had been guest speaker nearly 3 years ago. He gave us another fascinating and amusing show of Victorian and Edwardian slides which was greatly enjoyed.
The next meeting is on Thursday, January 21st, when Professor Derek Scott will be speaking about “Music and Orientalism”.
I look forward to seeing you then.
In the meantime I trust that you have a Happy Christmas and New Year.
