President Cheryl's Message.
Hi everyone
Thank you to all who participated in our workshop last Tuesday. It was a very productive session with lots of ideas to work on. It’s a sad reality that we have to do business differently, but I am confident we can overcome any challenges in a positive way which is of benefit to our club and the community we serve.
This week’s guest speaker is Leo Skea talking on aspects of his life in Zimbabwe. I’m sure you won’t want to miss hearing of the challenges he faced living in a country in transition. If you can’t make it in person, the zoom link is in this newsletter.
See you Tuesday
Yours aye

Editors Humour.

A taxi is cruising along Evans St when it runs a red light. “Hey!” the passenger shouts. “Be careful!”

“Don’t worry,” says the driver. “My brother does it all the time.”

He barrels through the next red light, and the passenger screams, “Stop doing that!”

“I’m telling you, my brother does this all the time.”

They approach the next light. Just when it turns green, the driver slams on the brakes. The confused passenger asks, “You just ran two red lights; why’d you stop at a green?”

“I had to,” says the driver. “My brother might have been coming.”

Bev. thinks she is lucky that her husband and mother are very close. She realized just how close the time she drove her mother to her doctor, which Adriaan(her husband) usually does. When the doctor came into the room, my own dear mother introduced me as her “son-in-law’s wife.
Anne was on a business call when she realized she was late for a class at the gym. She must have sounded rushed, because the woman on the phone said, “Am I keeping you from something?”

She replied, “I have to leave for tai chi.”

“Oh,” she said, sounding intrigued. “What country is that in?”
