Lisa stepped in today to run the session with Sasha the Rotary Club President of Elstree and Borehamwood as Pat and Sandra were away. It was also a pleasure to see the Elstree and Borehamwood Town Mayor Eric Silver attend the session.
Lisa gave members a quiz to start called 'Odd One Out' which was all about picking the odd words in a sentence and working out some jumbled letters to make a word.
This was then followed with chair exercises with Sarah. Everyone always enjoys the exercises with Sarah and especially her choice of music. The Mayor also enjoyed taking part. Members always feel they have had a good workout.
The session then followed with a new musical entertainer called Clare who really impressed us all with her fantastic performance. She sang some favourites which members really enjoyed and members also wanted to dance.
For the last part of the session, Lisa introduced some games like Putting golf, skittles, a dart board with Velcro wrapped balls that stick to the dart board when thrown, table tennis and some fluffy funny face balls which were passed around. The session was really enjoyable and very successful.
Thanks to Patrick O'Donnell, Xandy and Sasha's son Michael who were in charge registering members and writing labels. Thanks to Marijke who was in the kitchen helping to make tea/coffee and washing up. Also thanks to Tesco Borehamwood for sending Clare and Porshe who also helped with teas and coffees and washing up.
It was a pleasure to see Rotarian Nick Male who also volunteered in the session and Ann Goddard committee member. Thanks also to Eleanor a volunteer who attends the dementia clubs in Barnet who attended to help out in the session.
Our next session is on the 22nd August and we have the Elstree and Borehamwood Fire Brigade attending with their fire engine.
