Richmond Lunch Club – 10th Anniversary Poem

By Member Norman Jackson

 

When it comes to networking,

For top notch people and grub

There is only one place to go,

The Richmond Luncheon Club

 

So happy birthday Luncheon Club,

You’ve reached the age of ten

You give us so much pleasure,

Again, again and again

 

So thank you John and thank you Chris,

For such a great idea

The Lunch Club is indeed the tops,

And gets better every year.

 

Then there is the Higgins,

The one with the welcoming smile

All that work behind the scenes,

Makes it all worthwhile

 

So what about our members ?

Some say a motley crew

I ‘m sure you will agree with me,

That’s not exactly true

 

OK – they may drink quite a lot,

But what is wrong with that ?

It makes them more intr’esting,

With their stories and their chat

 

You are very clever Luncheon Club,

To pick Bruce and La Buvette

French cuisine at its very best,

With meals we’ll never forget.

 

But a word of warning Lunch Club –  a word of warning

 

Just because your’e ten years old,

You may think you’re in heaven

But La Buvette is older still,

Yes – it’s just turned eleven !

 

So ladies and gentleman, I’ve said it before and I‘ll say it again

 

When it comes to networking,

For top notch people and grub

There is only one place to go,

The Richmond Luncheon Club
