August’s Meeting was opened on a sad note with the news of a Member passing away that morning. Kathy Roberts was a past President & well-known Committee Member. A Cabbage Patch doll that had been with her in hospital was placed at the head of the Committee table in her honour. A special Memorial was being held the following Wednesday.
The Meeting was extremely well-attended & discussion focussed on plans for our upcoming Doll & Bear Fair on 27th August, along with our 40th Birthday Celebration lunch in October. Monthly Competition was won by Yvonne with her beautiful Eskimo baby, but there was stiff competition in the ‘Winter’ theme!
