Well, it was a long time between drinks (so to speak!). We had to stop dancing in July and came back on 9 November. However, undeterred, we had a great Christmas break-up. Ralph and Lyn Weise joined us, which was fabulous and we had quite a few visitors from other clubs to help us celebrate our last club night for 2021.
Our 37th birthday went very well and we were pleased to see so many people from different clubs supporting us. Many thanks to Janet, Janice and Howard for helping Mike, Laurina and Pat with the entertainment for the day. Minnetta made some beautiful cup cakes, which we were able to hand out to people as supper was not allowed under the COVID restrictions. Many people brought their own food to eat between sessions and the local takeaways did a roaring trade out of us as well.
Our AGM was held on 16 March, which was also St Patrick’s Day. Mike and Laurina played some great Irish songs and we had to do “Back to Donegal” of course. The AGM was very quick – it took half an hour to go through the business and re-elect a committee for 2021. Many thanks to Don and Minnetta McGilvery for stepping up once again and taking on the role of President and Secretary. Also a huge thank you to Ron Koerntjes for continuing with the Treasurer’s role. We had one addition to the committee. Welcome Racheal Holland, we look forward to working with you over the coming year.
JAYBEE DANCERS IN 2021
Our first night of dancing – who would have thought this time last year that we would be wearing masks to dance?
