2019 Presentations

 

The Tai Chi Practice Group had a luncheon on December 14 in MP rooms 1 & 2 of the main Bonsor Centre. Traditional practice time was held from 9:00 - 11:00am in half of the room with the remaining area set up for the luncheon which began at 11:30am. The food was brought in from a nearby restaurant by one of the members and included various vegies, assorted rice, noodles, meats and fresh fruit platters for desert. The group picture was taken following a wonderful lunch.

The 30 members in attendance commented warmly on the venue provided them for the practice and the set-up for luncheon. They are most appreciative of the support show them throughout the year for their practice times.
