COUSCOUS DINNER THURSDAY OCTOBER 13th

 

 

Despite a rainy evening, members arrived determined to enjoy the evening.   The ladies had been invited to wear a djellaba, and a wonderful display of gorgeous costumes resulted. Malgré une journée pluvieuse, nos adhérents sont arrivés bien décidés à profiter de la soirée! Les dames avaient été invitées à porter une djellabah pour faire couleur locale, et nous avons eu un merveilleux défilé de très beaux costumes…

Some of the male members also got in on the act…….. 

même quelques messieurs s’y étaient mis!…

The couscous itself was delicious and plentiful. Le couscous était délicieux et copieux. Christian playing his aproned  role. Pour servir nos hôtes, Christian et François avaient enfilé leur tablier de chef !!!

 

 

 

Michele entertained and educated with information about couscous and its region of origin and had decorated the tables with photos and symbols. Comme d’habitude, notre décoratrice Michèle avait fait des merveilles, et nous a préparé d’intéressantes informations sur l’origine du couscous, et sur Jacques Majorelle, pas toujours bien connu.

 

As the food and wine flowed, entertainment was provided by Mike and JP…….  Comme la nourriture et les vins étaient abondants, Mike et J.P. nous ont offert un spectacle très divertissant

   

…… and a jolly good time was had by all! En résumé, tout le monde s’est bien amusé !!! Soirée réussie…

ROYAL JUBILEE DINNER

Salle de la Baritaudière n°2 at 7 p.m.

The evening was a huge success,   Michele did her creative thing and set the ambiance for the evening with bunting and table decorations.

 

Members had been invited to provide all the food – apart from bread and wine – and they did so right royally.   I couldn’t believe that it would all be eaten, but eaten it was and with considerable gusto!.  Many thanks to everyone who provided such a magnificent spread.

  

 

     

Entertainment was provided as usual by some talented members; noteworthy were Mike and Sylvianne who duetted to Mike’s guitar.  As the evening progressed more and more folk felt the urge to sing and it was a joyous occasion.

 

Many a health was drunk to Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.
