Let them eat cake!

17th August 1993 is when the first Morrinsville book group (001) came into existence, so it's not surprising they celebrated their quarter of a century recently. Seven of the 10-strong group were able to attend celebrations. 

Convenor Kerry Mason sent in photos of the occasion and of the celebratory cake - quite a masterpiece! She writes that the cake was "amazing" but rather large, so the remainder has been frozen. 

"It’s fruit cake ...I think we’ll be eating it for the next four bookclub nights!" she writes.

Three of the group's original members had the honour of cutting it, as shown below.

The cake:

 

Four other members from the group's inaugural year attended the festivities, which were held at the Village Kitchen in Thames Street.

 "Here's to 25 more years of books wine and friendship!" says Kerry (pictured below on far right).

Morrinsville 001: (L to R) Phillipa Kilpatrick, Pauline Sexton, Kate Stevens, Alison Holloway, Jo Leask, Sandy Tritt, Kerry Mason. Absent: Maria Brown, Jean Cave and Rochelle Sinclair.
