CASA social club tries a Valentine's lunch

CASA social club tries a Valentine’s lunch

Being the appropriate time of year, CASA social club could not resist the temptation to hold a Valentine’s-themed event, so on Friday, February 10, members met up at Solar do Farelo restaurant, near Portimão, for a pre-Valentine’s lunch. 

CASA members know the restaurant from previous visits – “it is a delightful place to enjoy a meal; the food appears to get better and better with each visit!”

Due to the popularity with members, 33 of the 34 available spaces in the conservatory were filled. Thanks to the efforts of one of the committee (thank you, Glenda!), they were able to appropriately decorate the conservatory for the lunch with beautifully-made Valentine’s decorations.

During the meal, members held a Valentine’s-themed quiz, everyone getting a sheet of questions on arrival, these being self-marked just before coffee. Congratulations go to Avril and Kareen who were awarded the first and second prizes, respectively, after a one-question tie-breaker. The quiz prizes were generously donated by one of the members who was unable to attend the lunch.

“In addition to the excellent meal, for which our thanks go to Sr. Fernando and his superb staff, and the entertainment of the quiz, we were also pleased to be able to welcome four new members to CASA. All in all, a very successful lunch in every way,” said a CASA spokesperson.

The March event will be the Annual General Meeting & Dinner to be held in Silves at the well-respected Recanto dos Mouros. The AGM gives members the chance to both hear reports from the committee and to elect new members to the committee as needed.
