We had a lovely evening yesterday at out local Lions Club.
They had put on a three course meal for around 80 pensioners plus free transport and a good time was had by all.
It was great going round and having a laugh with old friends and with a bit of luck I hope to be around for the next gathering.
I was amazed though because I had donated 10 of the books that I had written concerning WW2 and the lot sold
within half an hour with folks asking me if I had any at home. These were the two I donated to the Lions.

I had to tell them that they would have to contact the chappie who printed them for me but he would be willing to post them on to whoever wanted one.

So lovely for you our Maisie, such a really nice time for you all, and a three course meal. Very Happy

Many thanks Tan.
I just could not believe how quickly they sold.
It all helped towards the Lions kitty and I only wish I had ordered more.

It goes to show just how many people really do enjoy reading books of this nature, memory walks for many of course, and for so many in getting to know the real nitty-gritty that happened in those times.
Like I mentioned previously, I was never greatly interested in history as a child, but what I remembered was about the main wars, not how many lived through those times, and bringing children up on a very tight budget, with the rationing too.
I'm sure a wide range of ages get a lot out of reading of those past times.

You are probably right Tan.
One woman got really upset because all the evacuee books had gone so her friend told her to go and buy the other book and she would swap with her.

That was a good idea, and sure many will pass on their copies to their family and friends who are interested in those times, also lovely to pass down to family in the future.
The printer will be on overtime very soon I bet. chuckles

Thanks Captain.
I just donated 10 books to the Lions mainly to put a little bit back in the kitty and I knew the folks attending the night out would be of my era and they would perhaps be interested in the war years.
IF I had known that they would be sold within 20 minutes and then many folks coming to me asking where they could purchase them from I would have donated more.
I will get some more sorted out for them for any future venues if it will help swell the kitty for them with all the good work they do.

What a lovely, generous lady you are and I'm sure they so appreciate it too, our Maisie!

So happy to hear that you and your husband had such a special dinner and every out - just wonderful!

Hi Mara,
I just hope that all goes well for the Lions who put the dinner on for the pensioners. This was their FIRST try at doing it and although there were one or two teething problems they all did well. I have written a letter of thanks to our local paper about them and our local magazine.

How wonder of you to acknowledge them this way, our Maisie!

Reading this reminds me of a sad post in our local paper last winter. A group of elderly ladies (can't remember the name of their club), each year donated a scholarship to a lucky kid ... and not once in the past 10 years had they received even a simply thank you note.

Note, they are going to donate the same amount of money each year to a local animal shelter - and who can blame them, sigh.
