Mae hen wlad fy nhadau yn annwyl i mi,
Gwlad beirdd a chantorion, enwogion
o fri;
Ei gwrol ryfelwyr, gwladgarwyr tra mâd,
Dros ryddid collasant eu gwaed.
Gwlad, gwlad, pleidiol wyf i'm gwlad,
Tra mor yn fur i'r bur hoff bau,
O budded i'r hen iaith barhau.

Hen Wlad Fy Nhadau
Land of My Fathers
The land of my fathers, the land of my
choice,
The land in which poets and minstrels
rejoice;
The land whose stern warriors were true
to the core,
While bleeding for freedom of yore.
Wales, Wales, favorite land of Wales!
While sea her wall, may naught befall
To mar the old language of Wales.

2015 Annual Meeting
The Garrison Family
After the Gymanfa Ganu we had an
opportunity to socialise and catch up with
friends, old and new, before enjoying a
wonderful meal provided by Glenridge.
The Two Sopranos
Bronwen and Renny
Peg, John, Meg and Judy
We were pleasantly surprised by the number of people
who had wonderful singing voices.  The sopranos
soaring with the high notes, complimented by the alto,
tenor and bass voices.

John Garrison was the song master and he was
accompanied on the piano by his wife, Mona.  Their
three children also sang, making this a real family affair.
Seated: Ronnie, Rhianon, Pat and Richard

Dor and Bob Brown
The afternoon was rounded off by taking care of the Society's business which
was led by President Amy Ferrell.  The Agenda included reports from the
previous Annual Meeting, a round up of Society activities during 2014 and
information about forecoming events.
Two members who passed away last year were remembered.  
The eulogy for Rodger Lewis was read by Amy Ferrell and the
eulogy for Barbara Jane Rhodes was read by Meryl Fell.
All in all this event was a real treat and will live on long in our
memories.  Our first Gymanfa Ganu proved to be very popular
and its success will ensure it will continue for years to come.
What a turn-out we had at our first ever Gymanfa
Ganu which took place at the Glenridge on Palmer
Ranch, Sarasota.  About 60 people attended the
Gymanfa and we sang a good selection of Welsh
hymns, singing both in Welsh and in English.
