Well what a wonderful night was had by all who attended the French inspired theme night held at Simon and Sarah Empson’s home last Tuesday night. It was a taste of what’s to come when we welcome our French Exchange student Lena.
Although numbers were down, it didn’t deter those who were there to dress in French costume and kick up their heels and enjoy the delicious French champagne and red wine on offer.
Thanks to everyone who brought along the wine and the scrumptious array of French inspired food – we nibbled on bikkies and cheese as an appetiser which was followed by French onion soup (from the kitchen of master chef John S.) served with Jo’s crunchy baguettes.
For second course we tasted delicious quiches and salads (provided by Peter K., Murray and Judy) and to top it off we were treated to Telsa’s gateau cake and profiteroles. During the evening Director of Membership, PR & FUN, Jo, presented us with a questionnaire to fill out and Foundation Director David presented Murray with his Centurion mug and club annual report. After tea Telsa formed the group into 2 teams to play some informal fun games such as the French maids’ race, building French landmarks and translating French into English.
Many thanks to Telsa for organising and coordinating the evening. We look forward to the next theme night. Who would like to take a turn at hosting????
