There’s no Dee’s diary as the Finemores are still away. Some comment on yesterday afternoon’s concert by South of the River choir is however required.
The seventy odd club members and visitors were treated to an amazing performance of choral music from different parts of the African continent, an Australian indigenous song, some gospel and a rousing version of an old favourite “You are my sunshine” with the audience invited and pre-coached to join in the chorous. The delivery was very professional and provided an enjoyable, at times funny, and in all a most entertaining hour or so.
Then there was the afternoon tea, a spread of delicious bits and pieces provided by members whom I will not name because I would leave out someone. The main organisers however do deserve a big thanks. Anita for decorating the room and arranging the choir, of which her daughter is a prominent and talented member, Penny for getting the food volunteers coordinated and they were supported on the day by an almost overwhelming number of volunteers helping to distribute food, clean, wash dishes, glasses etc., and of course, the bar helpers.
On the bowling front, the results on Saturday were a little disappointing with both teams fighting an even game right to the end, Div 4 going down with two rinks up by two shots to Caulfield Park- Alma, 76 – 74 and Div 7 with three rinks up by one to North Balwyn, 74 – 73.
