Our speaker for our May meeting was Audrey Hodge. Audrey spoke on the topic of “Wit and Wisdom”. She opened her entertaining talk with the quote that “inside every older person is a young person wondering what happened” – a sentiment we all agreed with! We agreed that as long as we were fit and healthy (and able to use our bus passes), all was well.
Audrey recommended a few things to help us to stay well, including minimizing multi-tasking, exercising regularly, learning something new and taking the time to embrace boredom and look around you. Amid laughter, she concluded by saying “Time is a great healer, but a poor beautician”
Zoe Reid spoke for us all when she thanked Audrey for her most enjoyable talk.
There will be no formal meeting in June as the club members are going on a trip to Whitehead. Our next formal meeting will be held in Omagh Library on the first Thursday in September (5th). On that occasion our guest speaker will be Dr Eamon Phoenix, political historian and broadcaster and former head of life-long learning at Stranmillis University College, Belfast. This is an open meeting and we will be pleased to welcome anyone who is interested to that meeting. Further details will be published before that meeting.
