April from 6.30 pm. Meeting at the Creamery from 6pm. The commemoration will be recorded so please dress up in clothes appropriate to that era. We would love to see as many as possible participating. Lots of planning has been done and it will be a historic occasion, which we can look back on with pride.
The Development Association wish to thank all the members who made themselves available on the rota for our tea dances, over the past year. It involves a certain commitment for four hours on those Sundays. Thanks to Ann Fitzgibbon who was chief sandwich maker.! Thanks to the many ladies who supplied delicious baked goods, I better not name them in case I forget someone.! Thanks to our Secretary Eileen Power, who organised the rotas, the bands and a lot of other miscellaneous items. Finally a sincere thanks to all our dancers for their support every month. Not alone did they come to dance but they also brought baking and spot prizes with them. We really appreciated their support. They were a great bunch of people and it was a pleasure to welcome them every month. We hope they have a happy and healthy Summer .
