A reminder about this week’s 41 Club Connects Zoom Meeting, and the weeks ahead… AND News about the 41 Club Big Weekend in October AND An Invitation from Ladies Circle for this Friday….
This week’s 41 Club Connects Zoom event is with Amanda Owen, the Yorkshire Shepherdess! Bestselling author, passionate photographer, newspaper columnist, public speaker, social media personality, tea-maker and mother of 9 – Amanda is a (very busy) woman of many talents, but first and foremost, Amanda is a shepherdess! We anticipate a huge turnout for this meeting so a reminder that if you can’t get on Zoom to watch it, you should be able to watch it live on the private 41 Club Members Forum on Facebook. It will be recorded for future viewing too. As for all 41 Club Connects Zoom events it is open to all members of the Round Table Family and their guests, so if you have friends who you think would like to view this you are welcome to forward the details to them.

Next Week….we are in conversation with Christo Brand, Nelson Mandela’s former prison warder This will be coming to you all the way from South Africa. “No one is born hating another person because of the colour of his skin or his background or his religion. People must learn to hate, and if they can learn to hate, they can be taught to love, for love comes more naturally to the human heart than the opposite” – Nelson Mandela Christo is a personification of this. We believe it is a talk you will never forget! The Zoom Log-In Details are:https://zoom.us/j/95916181163

Now you are hopefully aware that the National AGM is going to be virtual this year, but we want to look ahead to a shindig when we can hopefully all come together again, face-to-face – and that will be The 41 Club Big Weekend (Friday 1st October to Sunday 3rd October in Nottingham) President Peter is really excited about The 41 Club Big Weekend in October being put together by his PLC in compliance with all the Covid guidelines! Fingers crossed that this fabulous event can indeed take place! Here’s Peter’s PLC Chairman, Marcus Jones, to tell you about it:-
There is a light at the end of tunnel and with the support of our membership we can now start the process to reopen our plans for the year head which includes the belated celebration of the original 75th Year previously planned events along with a weekend that can only be described as “THE BIG 41 CLUB WEEKEND”.
We aim to bring together all aspects of the membership over this amazing weekend, fun, fellowship, entertainment, and the business side of things with an SGM, whilst ensuring it is an inclusive event for all.
We want to create an event that celebrates the amazing efforts by so many over the past
75 YEARS and in special recognition of the past year in dealing with Covid19 and the supportive work our members have shown in their communities.
The dates are set aside are and the booking site will open once we have the government updates.
It is intended to hold a Special General Meeting of 41 Club
on the morning of Saturday 2nd October.
Everyone who had booked in to the original 75th celebrations scheduled for last July will receive information on the new event from the event team as soon as practicable.
Visit www.41Club75.org for the updated information and “The Big 41 Club Weekend Store” that supports Dementia UK, the Presidents Charity. Further updates to follow. Marcus
The 41 Club Whisky Appreciation Group Members were worried last week that the Whisky Tasting scheduled for this Friday had been cancelled because I hadn’t mentioned it as a forthcoming event! Fret not it is still on for Friday – I didn’t mention it last week because the booking deadline had passed AND it was already at capacity with 82 people booked in.
The 41 Club – Wine Club The latest 41 Club Facebook Special Interest Group is the 41 Club Wine Club which was launched this week under Kevin Chard’s leadership. If you want to join it, and why wouldn’t you? – you can find details in the Facebook 41 Club Members Forum, or just drop me a quick email at Comms@41Club.org
