Christmas Dinner 2016
The Club enjoyed another excellent evening at the Club Christmas Dinner Meeting held in the Ulster Reform Club Monday 13 December. Over 40 Club members, guests and Inner Wheel Club members had a splendid evening of food and fellowship.
President Ivan welcomed all members and guests and, in particular, Una Donaldson, Inner Wheel Club of Belfast President Hilary Brooks and Rotary Club of Newtownabbey President Jim Fitzsimons.
Grace having been said, all enjoyed a delicious 3 course buffet dinner with an excellent hot and cold spread. Toasts were made by senior Past President Gordon Millington, President Ivan and PP Maurice Brooks displayed around the room and then auctioned 4 items – a 20yr old Glenfiddich malt whiskey, Belleek dish, £100 Oasis Travel voucher and a leather handbag which raised £185. Over 20 prizes from the ballot, which raised £500, were then distributed.
The evening continued with the return of last year's YouthAction's Megan McBride who graduated from Queens with a Classical Music Degree in July. She sang a selection of songs from the shows including Hairspray, West Side Story, Thoroughly Modern Millie, Wizard of Oz and Wicked and brought the evening to a close with all singing I'm dreaming of a white Christmas.
This splendid evening of fellowship concluded with President Ivan thanking all for coming and supporting the evening, PE Rosemary Simpson & Doris Houston for organising the evening and the Reform Club for the use of the building and the meal.
