Another year begins and our Spring
Reunion Lunch is in a few weeks time.
Unfortunately we have to start the year with the
very sad news that Alan Jones, a founder member
and stalwart of the Luncheon Club, passed away
suddenly on New Year's Day. Alan was a very well
respected member, not only of our Luncheon Club,
but numerous other Organisations. He was an
active member of both Prescot Probus Club and
Rainhill Probus Club. He was Organist at Rainhill
Methodist Church for many years and also helped
out at St Ann's Church at Rainhill. Alan was
associated with choirs and has provided the music
at musical evenings. He also taught music to
students who did extremely well in exams. Alan
will be sadly missed.
attendance at the Christmas Meeting was excellent
with 45 members and Ken Ball in the chair. The
'bottle' for the first reply from an eligible
member (ie not having previously won it) was Ron
Sands. Sam Rodden is still clearing his wine
cellar and he donated 4 bottles to cheer up some
lucky persons at Christmas.
from the floor by George Smith, Jack Moss, Ken
Ball, Eric Orme, Des Roberts and David Forshaw
kept us amused. We would like others to come
prepared with a joke or story, so the regulars
can sit back for a change.
