Our First Antique Display Night
What a fabulous fun night of exhibition of antiques and collectables by members last week.  The photographs don’t really do it justice.  It was great fun, and thanks to Judy Coultas and Mike Weber for their organisation of a unique event.  It was very interesting to even be able to carry out some very quick internet searching on Bernie Edwards brass box from his grandfather.  The box was one of a great many sent to soldiers during WW1 and contained cakes, chocolates or tobacco.  Alex Anderson’s 200 year old working fob watch was the prize winner.  Neil Heron’s collection of antiques from Indonesia was also a highlight.
Next Tuesday we have a Zoom meeting.  Ben Smith from The Mornington Community Support Centre (TMCSC) is speaking.  He will explain how the money raised in the recent Moondah auction will be used.  Together with Mornington Rotary we raised over $50K.

Antique Display Night
In place of a Guest Speaker, Judy Coultas and Mike Weber organized a display of antiques that have been collected by members. Mebers brought alon a collectable that had meaning and interest and spoke for 3 minutes about the articles. Fifteen members took the opportuity and a most informative and fascinating meeting ensured. An amazing array of objects/antiques were presented and Judy and Mike made 3 awards - blocks of chocolate - to three of the presentations. Alex Anderson for his Antique Italian ladies fob watch, Bernie Edwards for his collection of war containers and Neil Heron for his wooden Indonesian medicine bottles. The following photos give a good idea of what we saw.

Brynton's Joke of the Week
Brynton's Joke of the Week
An Englishman, Scotsman, Welshman, and Irishman are caught for desertion, court-marshalled and sentenced to death by firing squad.
Before being shot they were asked if they had any last requests:
The Welshman replied, “Before I die, I would like to hear 1000 Welsh voices singing ‘Land of my Fathers’”.
The Irishman replied, “Before I die, I would like to see 1000 Irish dancers performing ‘Riverdance’”.
The Scotsmen replied, “Before I die, I would like to hear 1000 bagpipes playing ‘Scotland the Brave’”.
“And you, Englishman! What is your last request?”
“For goodness' sake, please shoot me first!”
