50th Anniversary

 

Fifty nine Evergreens and guests celebrated their Golden Anniversary with a lunch at Llanishen Golf Club , exactly 50 years to the day that the  Evergreen first met – October 11, 1966. We were delighted to have previous leaders with us and especially thrilled to have as our Guest of Honour Mrs Margaret Fletcher –Davies.  Margaret ,along with her friend Enid Jennings,  had the vision to start an organisation in the Rhiwbina community to cater for the needs of the older generation , providing somewhere to meet, chat and make friends. This, together with interesting speakers, entertainment and  outings have seen the Evergreens flourish. Margaret, an elegant and eloquent  92 year old, took us back to the very beginnings of Evergreens  as she recounted stories of the early days.  

A wonderful start to our year of Golden Celebrations.
