Welcome to our two new members! Both members were inducted earlier this year and when asked to say something about themselves, they surprised us with two full accounts! C gave us plenty of interesting information about her work, studies and family life. V gave us a poem about her hobbies and family life.
My name is V and I live in Worcester Park
I started off in teaching, that’s where I made my mark
I then progressed to management, always a challenge for me
Organising events and training, never a moment free
I am now a lady of leisure and make the most of life
I joined a local Crossfit which has given me a lot of strife
I’m warbling in a Rock Choir and conjugating Spanish verbs
I love cooking and creating dishes with my own home-grown herbs
I’ve recently taken up painting but I’m no Monet you see
It’s actually paint by numbers, as easy as 1 2 3
Rambling and a reading group keep me very busy
Holidays with friends, my husband hardly ever sees me!
I have two strapping sons and a gorgeous daughter- in -law
To me they are still children, no different from when they were four
I work for another charity, it involves men and boys
The only trouble I find with them, they make a lot of noise!
And now I have been persuaded, to join a local group
By the lovely S, who is obviously cock-a-hoop!
This women’s group, the Soroptimists, who? I hear you say
Were introduced to me on a beautiful summer’s day
So now I am a member and there is no escape
I hope I can do it justice and not make too many mistakes!
