Our first Gathering in the fall 2016 and how good it was to be getting together again. We started on page one of our regular songbook and sang and strummed for almost two hours.......those old familiar songs we love so well.It was wonderful to have Janet MacQuarrie and David Stewart join us for the first time.Two very accomplished ukulele players that we hope to see a lot more of on Saturday mornings.
The highlight of the morning was Barry's Chocolate Chip Muffins and Cinnamon Sugar Cookies that were loved by all. Wonderful of Barry to get up and bake them at 5 o'clock to be sure they were fresh. Leah, are you ever lucky!
A great turnout for the first go in the fall when we know so many are away. Can't wait until next week to finish the Regular Songbook......maybe?

Today the residents of Andrews of Stratford had a party to honour their friends Ken and Marion Richards on the occasion of their 70th Wedding Anniversary coming up on Wednesday, the 31st of August. Most of Ken and Marion's family were also present for the occasion and WineSing played a few tunes (as our leader, Ann Campbell would say)
and serenaded the group for an hour before refreshments were served. Karen Forbes had everything in readiness when the guests arrived and during the performance Ann sang their special song, one of the golden oldies from 1940, "If I Had My Way" Marion and Ken were both gracious in their remarks of thanking everyone for the fine tribute.
