The Early Ford V-8 Club of America

Saturday 2nd July to celebrate Independence Day July 4, saw us once again travelling to Encounter Bay for lunch at Joe and Beverley’s holiday home. Last year was the first time this was held and as many enjoyed the day it was decided to do it again for this year.
On the menu was delicious Pumpkin soup, hamburgers which were overflowing and brownie cake for dessert.
Beverley had once again decorated the lunch area with USA pictures and flags amongst other things and although the weather wasn’t as warm as last year it did not dampen the day. Most of us arrived around 11.30 and settled in with nibbles and drinks and plenty of chit chat. By 12.30 most had arrived so soup was served with some returning for seconds. Recent members Rod Lovell & Paquita Scott arrived just after 1.00 and were welcomed as this was the first time they had met members of the club.
Hamburgers followed the soup, which were full to the brim with salad, onions, egg and hamburger.
Much much later came cake and brownies baked by Deb and Mike which really filled us up for the rest of the day.
By 5 pm most had returned home with Ian and Carol staying on for a couple of hours and Alan and Colleen and Graham and myself staying the night before returning home mid morning the next day.
Once again a lovely way to spend the 4th of July celebrations.
Thank you to Beverley and Joe for putting on the lunch and a thank you to the many helpers serving and washing up.
