Golden Group Christmas Dinner 2014

Kapiti Golden Group  Southwards Car Museum


Last Wednesday we held the Golden Group Christmas Dinner, at Southwards. The venue provided an excellent evening, with round tables so that it was easy to speak to everyone on your table.

The table settings and decorations were complements of Joy Ellis, who made everything herself, they looked fantastic. Thank you to everyone who either sent a message or phoned to say what good time they had.

Merry Christmas Everyone

A glass of bubbly or non alcoholic drink, served by Santa, started the proceedings, and everyone also received an early Christmas present.

The meal was excellent, with Turkey, Ham, Roast Potatoes, and Pumpkin +Veggies and salad, condiments of mustard, cranberry sauce and gravy. To follow was Christmas pudding, custard, fruit salad and ice-cream. Tea and Coffee to finish off.

This had been prepared and cooked for us by David, helped by his assistant Wendy;

At the mid-way point of the evening we had a Lucky Number draw, with three winners on each table. This fun entertainment idea came from Joy Ellis, who arranged everything herself. Joy also gave a birthday gift to the people who were celebrating their birthday this month, thanks Joy for being so generous.

Below are some pictures of the members, if you are not on here you must have been in the Loo.
