Barry Island 10K
It was a glorious day for the event, Barry Island looked its best. The six volunteers, Annora, Gail, Helen Jean, Pat and Linda did a variety of jobs We helped to set out the medals and T-shirts for the participants, and assisted people to the correct starting pens.
Once the race was under way we got to our posts distributing the medals, water and the correct size T-shirts while cheering and congratulating the finishers. We then helped with marshalling the two family fun runs.
The organisers were very appreciative of our efforts and we got to keep the blue T-shirts!
A Happy Hoedown
Barry and District Soroptimists had fun raising money for the President’s charities.
About 65 people supported this fabulous sunny evening Fundraiser at Brynhill Golf Club, fittingly on July 4th, American Independence Day
Square dancing caller Mic Spencely kept everyone on their feet dancing and yahooing enthusiastically with a variety of jigs and reels set to authentic music.
A quiz on America, a raffle, pinning the tail on a very surprised looking donkey, a WANTED frame ,which provided photo opportunities, and a half time activity of rolling pounds at a whisky bottle all added great fun to our fundraising efforts.
Lots of people had made every effort to dress appropriately in a variety of Stetsons, chaps, bandanas, gingham and denin skirts and jeans but it was our President, Mary Tornebene who stole the show in a glamorous red showgirl outfit complete with black stockings.
A Donald Trump lookalike made a surprise appearance at the end of the evening to present prizes
