Thorpe Bay

THE THORPE BAY U3A MONTHLY MEETING

August Meeting

Our “Speaker” this afternoon was actually a “singer”. Paul Adamson entertained us royally with a selection of songs from the 50’s & 60’s. It was a wide variety from Let’s Dance (Chris Montez) to Beyond the Sea ( Bobby Darin) What Do You Wanna Make Those Eyes At Me For (Emile Ford & the Checkmates) & it was a surprise when he switched to Reggae with Desmond Decker’s The Israelites. He got us all clapping & waving our arms in the air & some brave souls were dancing too. At the end everyone shouted for an encore & Paul obliged us. It was a fun afternoon & I think everyone enjoyed themselves, I certainly did!
