Carols and shared lunch at Bro President’s house – 18 December 2016

Bro. President Peter and his wife, Julie, were kind enough to open their house up for brothers, wives and family members to join in a shared lunch today, followed by some hearty singing of Christmas Carols.


It was especially great to see Bro Colin and Julia Kibbler, Bro Andrew and Bernadette O’Mara-Winson, Bro Jim and Pat Townley in addition to the usual “crew” and we hope that they will all have a very happy and restful Christmas as they recover from their various operations and illnesses which have troubled them over the last twelve months.


As always, lusty singing from the Brothers of Circle and descants from the various musically gifted Ladies made the singing memorable. It was suggested that we could have put on a performance and raised money with such talent in abundance! The icing on the cake, though, was a rendition of “Away in a manger” featuring Bro Rob della Spina’s children singing solo on verse 2 – exquisite and very touching.

On behalf of Bro President Peter and Julie, we wish to record our very best wishes for a happy and holy Christmas, as well as a prosperous and healthy New Year.
