La Mon Hotel Weekend Jan 23

    La Mon House Annual Dinner Dance Weekend After all the months of preparation we had arrived at La Mon. Robbie Hewitt and myself began the job of getting the motorhomes parked up. Elmer and Selma also lent a hand. Then Roy and Jenny took over to park up the later comers, thank you. It was really great to see everyone on Friday evening ready to kick off the weekend by enjoying the music and dancing in the Milford suite.   Saturday after a very pleasant lie in, knowing all was going smoothly, I enjoyed joining some of you in the leisure pool and jacuzzi. 

  Very pleased to join you all then at the sparkling wine reception before heading into the beautifully decorated room for the dinner. Thanks to the staff for the service provided that made the meal go off well. Our logo on the main balloons on either side of the stage were well admired and judging from the pictures taken with them provided a great talking point. Again, the entertainment was great and had everyone up dancing to the wee hours of the next day. Shouts of more meant he definitely earned his money, before some of us who were well relieved that all the hard work had paid off, went to bed tired but content. Others I believe took the party to a certain person’s motorhome and I believe four o’clock was seen. We will mention no names. During the break in the entertainment on Saturday evening our raffle which included large cash prizes, alcoholic beverages, Tropic products and a room in the hotel to use at ones’ own timescale was very well supported. Thanks to all the members who gave generously. 

    A few birthdays were celebrated and a fifty-wedding anniversary. Thanks to everyone who gave me cards and gifts. They were very much appreciated. The Margaret Davidson cup which is awarded for best attendance at rallies was won by our past treasurer. In his absence his father accepted on his behalf. 

    To those of you unable to join us through bereavement our illness you were in out thought and prayers.  In conclusion I would just like to say I am looking forward to our next rally at Cookstown which will be Burns Night celebrations. Oh! and check out the gallery for pictures.Thanks everyone. Irene Hewitt

    The Chairman took the opportunity to thank his committee and all the members without whom the rallies would not happen. He also asked for more Hosts to come forward for the rallies which are forth coming. He assured new members that if they put their name forward, he would assure them of support of an experienced past host to help them. The chairman thanked the previous webmaster for his time in post and welcomed our new Webmaster.
