On a warm spring evening our Chair KB used the theme of ‘Health’ and introductions were to the question: What one thing keeps you happy and healthy?
We had the pleasure of two visitors to our meeting, namely Keith Dickerson from Colchester speakers and Andrew Gee from Speakers of Felixstowe. It was great to meet members from other ASC clubs and to compare notes on how club meetings are run.
We hope they arrived back home safely in their electric car and look forward to seeing them again.
The invocation was a positive health pledge read by KB.
