New President at Penultimates

Following the recent AGM for the “PENS” group, John Berryman has been voted in as our new president. Our group, as stated above, is about enjoying each other’s company and having fun.
 |  The Informer  | 

We have a monthly meeting with a speaker, for example Jon Jesson and his wife Marilyn who have spent their working lives refurbishing vintage caravans and have written several books. A very interesting talk as are all of our speakers.

The meeting is followed by lunch at one of the cafes in town enabling members to chat to each other while enjoying good food.

Once a month we play mini golf {depending on the weather} with lots of camaraderie and teasing, and sometimes a little showing off. Those who want to have lunch at a local cafe, but playing mini golf is not a requirement, could be just an outing for fellow-ship.

We have outings to different places; the next one is to the Troubadours in Tairua, to enjoy the latest show. Other trips will be arranged throughout the year. A monthly newsletter keeps all members informed of club activities, guest speakers, and information about the committee.

This group is aimed at people who are a little older, perhaps retired, who may be widowed or just on their own, as well as couples. Of this age group a range of both men and women are

Members. The meetings and outings are a great way to make friends and get out and about. Having transport is not always necessary as carpooling is offered to out of town events. Everyone is welcome to come along to a meeting at the Mercury Bay Bowling Club held on the 4th Monday of the month; or even just make contact with John Berryman, Joan Rosman 027ltimatesltim
