In October we were fortunate enough to have a visit from Sue Dell, an expert on Jane Austen's life and work. Sue, an international speaker who had just returned from a lecture tour in Kansas, gave us an enthralling insight into Jane's early life. We very much hope that she will return next year to tell us more about our famous local author.
November saw us at Avenue Nurseries for our annual lunch and shopping trip. As usual, the management and staff looked after us very well — and the food was delicious! We celebrated Doris's imminent 100th birthday and Kathleen's 99th (apologies to Kathleen for making her a year older than she is!) with a rousing chorus of Happy Birthday, with many of the other customers joining in. A large number of purchases were made in the Edinburgh Woollen Mill department, where the kind manager gave a 20% discount to all CAMEO members. Thank you to Norma, Christine, Sarah and Karen for their help with transport.
Our last meeting of the year will be our Christmas Tea on Saturday 15th December at 2pm. Members are advised not to have too large a lunch beforehand!
