December's lunch at Molly Malone's was a great success. We had 32 lunchers, one of our best turnouts, who enjoyed an early season turkey dinner. Wine sponsored by Mike Sinkinson of Thai Bauer complemented the food.
Thanks to all the people who brought along a Christmas present for the School kids. I apologize for not making a note of who actually did so but you know who you are.
Together with these presents, the committee have allocated Bht 8,000 which has been already given to the school for educational toys. All these toys will be given to the 40 school children on Monday 29th December when they have their party. It starts at 10.30am. for anyone who would like to go along. The teachers and kids would be very pleased to see you. The school now has all the equipment, TV, fridge, etc. installed.
I hope to set up a schedule of lunches for the whole year early in January. Anyone who has any feedback on the format, venues, etc. please let me know. The wine sponsorship is a key factor in making the events attractive and I would please ask for volunteers for next year. If you have a particular month you would like to sponsor, please let me know. I would like to thank all who sponsored the wine in 2008, and hope you may be able to repeat your charitable act in 2009.
Lastly, I wish you all a happy and successful new year.
