OUR NEXT MEETING WILL BE ON

“The Classics Bistro” – Mounties,
101 Meadows Road,
Mount Pritchard.

We had a well-attended meeting at the Macquarie Hotel last week with the Card School continuing well into the night.



This week our meeting will be in the “Classic Bistro” at Mounties, 101 Meadows Road, Mount Pritchard – meeting there from 6 pm.

It’s a glamorous trip down memory lane and a taste of the beloved classical pub food featuring a diverse array of dishes to satisfy even the most discerning of taste buds. Plus, don’t miss out on the exclusive premiere of the brand new PIZZA selection! Classics pays homage to the days of Audrey Hepburn, James Dean and Marilyn Monroe with its classical Hollywood ambiance and star studded menu. Let’s face it, no glamorous Hollywood gathering would be complete without a glass of good cheer. Choose from the wide selection of drinks and beverages available at the restaurant bar. A booking has been made so look for big table!

Our meeting on 20 March 2018 will be held at “The Jacaranda Hotel” part of Geoff Gibbs Family Compound at 14 Weerona Road, Edensor Park – 6:00 for 6:30 we will be having a BBQ dinner with beer and wine ( a $20 contribution to costs is required.

 

 

We received advice from Liverpool Catholic Club that we were welcome to hold our meetings on the basis that we had a Bistro Meal beforehand and then booked a room at a cost of $360 per night. This was a disappointing response to our request but it is what it is and we will now actively seek a new venue and possibly frequency/format for future meetings.

Those members who attended the District Conference reported that it was a successful event with many worthwhile speakers and ample opportunity to renew old friendships and make new ones.

We have received a request from Mary Watson, Youth Liaison at Green Valley Police to BBQ Sausages and Onions at the Annual “Cops and Kids NRL League Tag Day” on Thursday 12 April 2018 at Browns Reserve, First Avenue, Hoxton Park. We will be required (with BBQ Trailer) from (9:30 am to 2:30 pm) the do the BBQ and help in serving the participants. This is a great day for the local children and our local Police are to be commended for organising it each year

March Birthdays: 10th – William Trinh, 11th – Grazia Bunter and 15th Stephanie Trinh.

March Anniversaries: No More for March

Members Raffle Jackpot will be $10.00 when we resume scheduled meetings.

A Great Lesson on Stress (with words of wisdom?)                                                                

A young lady confidently walked around the room with a raised glass of water while leading a seminar and explaining stress management to her audience.  Everyone knew she was going to ask the ultimate question, ‘Half empty or half full?’

She fooled them all. “How heavy is this glass of water?” she inquired with a smile. Answers called out ranged from 250 grams to half a kilogram.

She replied, “The absolute weight doesn’t matter.  It depends on how long I hold it.  If I hold it for a minute, that’s not a problem.  If I hold it for an hour, I’ll have an ache in my right arm

If I hold it for a day, you’ll have to call an ambulance.  In each case it’s the same weight, but the longer I hold it, the heavier it becomes.”

She continued, “And that’s the way it is with stress.  If we carry our burdens all the time, sooner or later, as the burden becomes increasingly heavy, we won’t be able to carry on.”

“As with the glass of water, you have to put it down for a while and rest before holding it again.  When we’re refreshed, we can carry on with the burden – holding stress longer and better each time practiced.

So, as early in the evening as you can, put all your burdens down. Don’t carry them through the evening and into the night.  Pick them up again tomorrow if you must.

1   Accept the fact that some days you’re the pigeon, and some days you’re the statue!

2   Always keep your words soft and sweet, just in case you have to eat them.

3   Always read stuff that will make you look good if you die in the middle of it.

4   Drive carefully… It’s not only cars that can be recalled by their Maker.

5   If you can’t be kind, at least have the decency to be vague.

6   If you lend someone $20 and never see that person again, it was probably worth it.

7   It may be that your sole purpose in life is simply to serve as a warning to others.

8   Never buy a car you can’t push.

9   Never put both feet in your mouth at the same time, because then you won’t have a leg to stand on.

10   Nobody cares if you can’t dance well.  Just get up and dance.

11   Since it’s the early worm that gets eaten by the bird, sleep late.

12   The second mouse gets the cheese.

13   When everything’s coming your way, you’re in the wrong lane.

14   Birthdays are good for you. The more you have, the longer you live.

15  Some mistakes are too much fun to make only once 

16  We could learn a lot from crayons.  Some are sharp, some are pretty and some are dull.  Some have weird names and all are different colours, but they all have to live in the same box.

 17   A truly happy person is one who can enjoy the scenery on a detour.

18   Have an awesome day and know that someone has thought about you today.

AND MOST IMPORTANTLY

19  Save the earth….. It’s the only planet with we know that has beer and chocolate!
