March 2019 Extra

On arrival our guests tackled a Word Search based on the names of Cornish saints, of which there are many, and a quiz based partly on ‘This Week in the Past’. Then our guest entertainer, Caroline Schanche, presented a lively song and dance session, although the dancing was mainly chair-based for the audience.

Caroline introduced a program of popular songs from musical shows, including The King and I, My Fair Lady and Oklahoma. She led the singing and did the actual dancing. The rest of us sang along, waved our arms about and tapped our feet, mostly in tune and in time with the music. For some songs guests were provided with a variety of bells, rattles and streamers which added to the fun. We then stopped for our usual tea and delicious home-made cakes, kindly provided by a group of our volunteers.

After tea, we watched a film based on news reel items from 1968 and it seemed extraordinary that these events happened over 50 years ago because they were still so clear in our memories. The afternoon concluded with the answers to a quiz based on the film and, also, the latest edition of the reminiscence magazine ‘Sparkle ’which is kindly sponsored by the Bowgie Inn. For the very first time, one of our guests scored 20/20 and won a small prize.

Our next meeting will be in Crantock Village Hall from 2-4pm on Monday 1st April 2019. For more information contact Joan on 01637 831347 or Di on 01637 830544.
