Mountbatten House Meeting Posted for Liz Gregor

In late April, approximately ten members of the Center Court and Wimbledon chapters in TN drove to the DBE Mountbatten House Southeast Regional Conference in Atlanta. On arrival, a warm reception awaited us by the pool where members had the opportunity to meet fellow Commonwealth women from the Southeastern states.

 

On Saturday morning, roughlTenessee Girlsy 50 DBE ladies gathered together to learn more about Mountbatten House in Texas – a facility that our chapters help support. It was interesting to learn more about the upgrades that have taken place over the past year at the house and hear more about the residents who are currently living there.

In the evening, our hosts arranged a wonderful dinner and a fun pub quiz on the UK ….many of us did poorly and realized we’ve been gone from the UK for way too long!

 

A highlight for me was meeting three ladies from the Wirral, England from where I originally hail! The Wirral is a small peninsula between Liverpool and North Wales and yet in this small group of 50 ladies 4 of us were born there. Vivienne had even been evacuated to my village of Irby during WWII and had attended my primary school.
