President Ann Whaley welcomed everyone to the March meeting of Maze/Brookfield WI.

Guest Speakers were Denis and Jill Wilson from Glenavy who gave a fascinating illustrated talk on their epic journey from Peking to Paris in a 1927 Rolls Royce Car in 2007.

They told of the highs and lows of their trip when travelling through China, The Gobi Desert, Mongolia, Russia and on to Europe.

Helen Dunlop proposed the vote of thanks. Competition winners were Pauline Johnston, Florence Beacom in second and Esther Law in third. Ballot winners were Jean Bell and visitor Shirley Wilson.

One of the members, Eileen Marks, celebrated her 90th birthday recently and received a gift to acknowledge this occasion.
