Lisa took the session today with Eleanor. The session started with 2 challenges. The first challenge was all members to copy a picture of a house and a stick man in the middle. The challenge was to keep the pencil on the paper without lifting it when drawing the stick man. This was not easy for members but when Lisa showed them how it could be done they were very surprised and amused. The second challenge was to guess how many sweets in a big jar. The person who guessed the nearest figure was given a prize.
Today was also celebrating World Polio Day and Sasha made some purple cupcakes to commemorate Rotary who have nearly helped to eradicate polio worldwide. When children are immunized against poliomyelitis the little finger is dipped in purple ink. This colour has now been carried World-wide as a symbol of the battle to finally eradicate polio. Members got together for a group photo holding up a purple cupcake.
The Town Mayor, Eric also joined us in the photo. The session then followed with chair exercise with Sarah and then some singing and a music quiz led by Eleanor.
Our GP was unable to attend today as she had an emergency but we had a visit from an Admiral Nurse Hayley Cooper who introduced herself and informed members that she would be happy to speak to anyone who needed any help or advice.
Our thanks to our volunteers Sandra, Yvonne and Marijke for helping with the teas and washing up. Also thanks to Eleanor for taking the latter part of the session.
