Hello. Just so as anyone who's interested knows - the song I sang is called 'Ohio River Boat Song'.
It was a nice evening. Paul makes for a perfect mc.

As there will be no Easter club meeting, Brenda & myself would like to take this opportunity to wish you all a very happy New Year. We'd like to but.... unfortunately..... we've lost our diary.
