Wednesday Monthly Meeting - February 2022

Our first Wednesday meeting of this year. A small group but so many stories to share. We all were dressed in our traditional clothes looking very pretty. We thought why not start the year by knowing a little more about everyone. Dawn who was born in Scotland, spent many years in Africa, well she was very excited when she heard about moving to Africa, that the place is nice and hot, instead, she found herself in a place north of Africa which was quite cold actually, nevertheless that didn't stop her from living there. Like this, there were many more interesting stories of everyone who was there at the meeting. We ran out of time. Think we need to catch up and carry on over a cuppa.
