Meets every Monday at 10am at Morton Village Hall.

On 27th October our speaker was Do-Do Dee, who brought the second part of her entertainment ‘Scintillating Leaves on the Tree of Life’. She has a fund of enjoyable stories about events and happenings in her life, and members could choose which particular leaf on the tree we wished to hear about. For every leaf there is, at least one story, and Do-Do Dee, without any other prompts, brought each episode in her life. We were taken on a tour through Do-Do Dee’s younger days, a daughter of the Methodist manse, to her time at university, her own family, her teaching career and various theatrical anecdotes. Along the way were some of the ‘whoops’ events, where all did not go smoothly, and many more spoke of the enjoyment of life in many aspects: motorbikes, horses, belly dancing, travel and cats, to name just a few. Do-Do Dee finished our time with a poem by Robert Frost, which vividly illustrates the truth: we make choices in our lives, and she had explained her own path.
