Thirty five were seated at our annual Christmas Dinner on last Saturday night. The first of the Christmas wreaths for Bthar went on sale on last Friday and Saturday. Further wreaths will be made at this Wednesday's meeting. You are asked to bring along some berried holly and other suitable evergreens. The wreaths will be on sale on Friday at the Bingo and Bazaar, after Mass on Saturday, and you can also purchase by contacting any of the Active Age members. We say "S bhr mbeatha abhaile!" to Riny and Antoon following their enjoyable holiday in Australia.
The bad weather for two weeks in succession upset plans to hold the 41st annual Bazaar. Hopefully Mother Nature will oblige on next Friday night following the Bingo session and also on Sunday night. In anticipation of your continued support the Committee members ask you to come as early as possible. Any upset of plans will be announced on Friday on Shannon-side/ Northern Sound. We depend on the usual loyalty of the ticket sellers. Donations will be much welcomed.
