EXONIANS TOAST THE BARD
OUR President Mr Rab Cross welcomed members and guests to the Burns Night Supper, which this year was held in the historic surroundings of Exeter Guildhall on Friday 26 January.
After the traditional haggis, neeps and tatties, the toast was proposed to ‘The Immortal Memory’ followed by the traditional toast to the Lassies.
During the evening, our immediate Past President Alderman Hilda Sterry was presented with her President’s medal on leaving at the end of her term in office.

A THANK YOU FOR SUPPORTING THE MONTHLY SOCIALS
I would like to express my thanks to all those members who support the monthly socials
at St Katherine’s Priory and in particularly the Christmas Social on Sunday. Despite
the fact that there were six or seven regulars missing - holidays etc, there were
In addition there were the five non Society members of JAMAS band. Compare that with the numbers previously attending on Friday evenings over the last two years at Southernhay Church Hall, this can truly be counted as a success.
It maybe not for me to comment ! but, I think JAMAS put on a really good show.
The solo items in particular. Marion on the Hammer Dulcimer accompanied by Sandra on the keyboard, Julie on the flute, accompanied by Mike on the Accordion and Sandra on her accordion. She also contributed with a humorous poem. We even managed to get in a couple of dances, called and instructed by Julie, our flautist. Well done the dancers !!
More information to follow concerning our next social..
