Seniors Night

Have not been doing much in the way of needlework or quilting the past few weeks, I have other commitments this time of the year which unfortunately, brings to admit maybe that I am not as young as I use to be (lol) .
Firstly I am on the events committee within our local council and have been busy organising functions, each year the Council holds 2 events for the over 60 years of age residents within our council area. The first was held last Wednesday night ( 26th November ) and the next is this Wednesday (3rd December). Each event is catered for approx 250 Seniors Residents and approx 70 others this includes Staff, service groups and entertainers, Staff dedicate a lot of time in arranging and preparing for the events, We supply a nice hot meal of roast meat, gravy and hot vegetables followed by Xmas Pudding and ice cream, followed by a visit from Father Christmas and a free gift, followed with Tea, Coffee and after dinner mint, during the evening members of the staff entertain them.
It is a very long and tiring evening but at the end of the night, the smiles of there faces makes it all worth it.
I have not been blogging regularly but , I have found the time to check out and keep up with many blog sites (lol).
