When I was one,
I had just begun.
When I was two,
I was nearly new.
When I was three,
I was hardly me.
When I was four,
I was not much more.
When I was five,
I was just alive.
But now I am six,
I’m as clever as clever.
So I think I’ll be six
now and forever.

Thanks to everyone who attended the 6th birthday party and end of year session of North Bucks.It was an evening of beginnings and endings ,as we saw manuals completed and bling passed on.
Many guests either dressed or acted their shoe size,which added to the merriment. Louise was a strict headmistress in charge of an unruly mob.However,the soft side was the reading of excerpts from Winnie the Pooh.
Carmel took on lights, Sarma enjoyed his grunt role and Charles used an American word, yonder meaning in the distance.
Maggie amused us with a tale of a workman’s bill.
Topics was in the form of pass the parcel.
John told us he wanted to go back in time to our clubs beginning.
Trish told us of a disaster at home.
Graham,our district governer,told us about his first moment in the spotlight.
Chris, a guest, took the prize as he told us about childhood toys, having won the yo yo.
Tim became a CC with a speech about smiles.
Rob evaluated and won best evaluator.
Mick took on his first speech and told us about his life.
Mark ‘roasted’ Jim with such panache, he won best speech and humour. Anyone who missed this one, really missed a treat.
Jim replied and was evaluated by Lorne.
There was a lot of concern as we lit the cake candles, but all was safe.
Nicky surpassed herself with a fabulous boozy TM logo cake…
Nicky, you are a master (or should that be mistress) baker.
After an elongated break, we enjoyed feedback from our school inspector, Yiorgos (General evaluator).
The guest list was impressive with old and new faces. Too many faces to count today, as we ran out of chairs.
Jim has left a legacy of yet another distinguished club and area award.
Thanks to all of the people who worked hard both on and off the committee.
The new committee are already at work and look forward to our next meeting.
Rob is TM next week, 7th July.
