U3A MARINA Baixa member Colin Butterfield wrote to RTN to say a ‘THANK YOU’ to everyone involved in the western-themed Garden Party held recently in the garden of U3A Marina Baixa Secretary Joan Flint and husband Bill:
‘Some 93 members attended the western-themed Garden Party in the lovely garden of our Secretary, Joan Flint and her husband Bill.
A lot of hard work went into the event, much of it behind the scenes before the day. Joan works tirelessly to make these events a success and is backed up by ahard-working committee – and their spouses too. There was also lots of help from non-committee members.
As for the meal, there was a platter of bread, meats and cheese for starters. This was followed by a main course of either‘cow pie’, sausage and beans or chicken, with potatoes and vegetables.
For desserts – well again lots of choice and all were delicious, many of them made by the committee and members!
A raffle was held as is customary, then when it was dark, candles were lit on every table and prizes were awarded for the best male and female costumes. Challenging games followed, plus a pictorial quiz, where the clues were all around the garden.
All evening Rob played music with a country and western theme.
The evening then dwindled away as people gradually wended their way home. Another great event!THANK YOU EVERYONE, especially Joan & Bill.’
