NEWSLETTER May 2012

Dear Members and Friends,

Please note our next talk:

Thursday 7th June at 6 pm – "Charmed by Southern Whispers" by Sybil Allen
Sybil will have books for sale and will personally sign copies.


Reading an old Reader’s Digest Magazine found in a doctor’s waiting room I found this joke:

A man returned from the restaurant that the American Astronauts had opened on the moon.
Reporter: How did you enjoy the experience?
Man: Good food but no atmosphere!

After the last two lunches held by The Bahamas Historical Society at the Nassau Yacht Club, Anne and I agreed that we had enjoyed both the food and the pleasant atmosphere. Clarice Granger and her committee created beautiful table arrangements. Our guests, women and a few brave men, met friends not seen for donkey’s years and made new friends. The fashion show featured beautiful ladies in chic outfits. Then there is the excitement of the draw for door prizes and raffle tickets.
