WHAT’S ON: 14 TO 18 OCTOBER 2019

Hello everyone,

We had an absolutely delightful day on Friday, when we celebrated the preliminary meeting to organise a Club for Women in 1894.  The film, made of the play performed in 1994, has been upgraded for use on modern equipment, and is a real gem.  We were so pleased to applaud Laurel Howard and Kathleen Smith, two of the original cast, and to see our much loved Past President Ailsa Farmer officiating. It’s a very special piece of our long history.

In next week’s Artistic Lyceum, we will hear from Anna Kanaris, a journalist whose special interest and current expertise is in the area of Aboriginal Art.  Her topic, ‘Understanding Aboriginal Art’, should be most informative.

There will be Bridge and Mahjong as usual on Wednesday.  Please remember to book in for those by Tuesday morning.

The Art Focus Group will meet at the Art Gallery at 10.30 am on Thursday, for an hour’s visit with a guide.

Don’t forget that this Friday is Lyn Feeney’s Myer event.

As we approach the end of the year, we are getting ready for the AGM.  You will be receiving the Meeting Notice, with nomination form for Management Committee,  on Friday. Please make an effort to be involved.

Best wishes to you all,

Norrine

WHAT’S ON: 21 TO 25OCTOBER 2019

Hello everyone,

Over the last week or so we’ve been letting our hair down! Those of us who went to the Myer promotion with Lyn Feeney really enjoyed the morning.  The bubbles and nibbles were much appreciated! 

We’ve also been to the WAAPA performance of Die Fledermaus, to support our Dame Mary Gilmore award winner, Elena Marcello, who had a leading role. It was a very lively affair, and the quality of the singing was amazing for such young voices. We’re thinking that we would like to do lots more of these outings. It’s really fun to share them with friends.

There’s no doubt that our Lyceum speakers broaden our perspective. This week we immersed ourselves in Australian indigenous art, from the traditional to the contemporary, with Anna Kanaris. Next week’s speaker, Michele Webster, has a keen interest in traditional Chinese culture.  She will share slides, short videos and music clips from the Shen Yun performers. It will be most informative.

On Friday October 25, we will hold our Birthday dinner. Bookings have been excellent, and we are at full capacity. It promises to be a very special occasion.

Make sure you book for the Dame Mary Gilmore award recital on Tuesday 29th October. You will really enjoy meeting Elena Marcello , who has a beautiful voice. It will follow the Lyceum format, of guest performer, followed by lunch.

I’m sure you need no reminder that the Melbourne Cup is just around the corner. It’s time to dust off the finery, buy a new hat and prepare to enjoy yourselves! We’ll expect you all to come!

Until then, best wishes to you all,

Norrine
