With the autumnal hour change approaching, our Toastmaster LG used the theme of the clocks changing with some interesting facts and anecdotes.
Introductions were to the question: Do you like the short days of winter or the long days of summer and have you any amusing tales to tell about the hour changing?
There were some very amusing tales indeed!
We had the pleasure of 2 guests last night, JW, ID and of course Mater. we hope they enjoyed the evening and look forward to seeing them again.
