The Marlow Centre Ladies Club held their Annual General Meeting in October. The meeting went very well, although there was a touch of sadness about the event since Doreen Reed, who was one of the founders of the club, stepped down as Chairman. However Doreen will continue to support Marlow Ladies as a member.
She was replaced as Chairman by Cynthia Wharton who previously held the position as Doreen’s Deputy. In recognition of all that Doreen had achieved for the club from its modest beginnings to the successful entity that now exists, a presentation of a crystal carriage clock was made to Doreen by Cynthia on behalf of the club.

After the AGM, the guests and members were treated to a talk by Tony King on the The Swinging 60s – but much more which was very entertaining and included a slide show that triggered a lot of memories amongst the club members.
The last event of the year was a trip to the Mill at Sonning to see a matinee performance of California Suite by Neil Simon. The show involved four playlets, all set in the suite of a Californian hotel and, as with many of Neil Simon’s plays, abounded with both great comedy and some pathos. It proved extremely popular and a great time was had by all who attended, including a nice meal before the play. It was a fitting end to a most enjoyable year during which provided some fantastic trips and really enjoyable talks.
The ladies now look forward to an equally enjoyable 2013, which started with a Cheese and Wine evening on 31st January, with a talk on the Magic Circle and the presentation of cheques to the club’s chosen charities.
