ZVYC News 15 December 2017

Dear Members and Friends,

TGIF/End of year party
Last Friday over 50 members met to see out the year end (and wished our teams going to the Youth Nationals a great send off); The plates of snax provided by the girls were very popular and plentiful, even so that although they were so delicious, there was some left over.
Memories of the season and suggestions for the months going  forward were plentiful and discussed often, and generally it was felt we should be doing this more often in the season. Compliments and wishes of the festive season closed off a very successful evening.
