DANCE: At the new Ramblers Country Club, Streete Parish Park this Friday night, July 29 to the ever popular Outlaws Band preceded by Pat’s Country Road show. Lots of seating space and floor service. A great night promised and all proceeds from the night go towards the creation of a lighted walkway around the park which will be 0.9 of a mile long and will be of benefit to all in this parish and surrounding parishes. Any queries call (087) 9287129. Admission €15. TABLE QUIZ: The event takes place at the Fiddler’s Green Pub, Streete this Saturday night, July 30 in aid of Inny Wanderers Soccer Club. This club has brought much excitement to the parish and in order to keep its standard up, funds are needed so your support on the night will be greatly appreciated. Any queries please call Cliff Thomson on (087) 7763854. PRIDE OF PLACE: By the time you read this judging for the pride of place 32 county competitions will have taken place and a report on what happened when the judges visited Streete Parish on Tuesday last. As we represent Westmeath it will only cover the part of the parish in Co Westmeath. We wish success to both Ballynacargy and Kinnegad who along with us were also selected by the local authority to represent the county in three different population categories. The results will not be known until November 5 when they will be announced at a function in Wexford, so fingers crossed until then. CLARE ISLAND: Rambler members interested in going to Clare Island during the first weekend in September must text Brian on (086) 2596656 ASAP. Some people were not definite, so confirmation must be provided this week! THANKS: To those who helped remove the posts following our annual Vintage Day in the park and the ladies who collected the rubbish, etc in the field, thank you very much. A number of complimentary texts and emails have been received from people who attended. Thanks to all who helped out on the day.
WILDLIFE CLUB: The county clay shoot is on this Sunday in Edgeworthstown and the club hopes to have at least two teams taking part. All members are asked to note that an important club meeting will be held on Tuesday night August 2 at the Cornmill Pub, Boherquill. All members are asked to attend. BOHERQUILL RAMBLERS: The Ramblers ended their walking year on a high note last Sunday with a great walk over the hills and meadows south of Lough Lene, all in glorious summer weather. The Ramblers will now take its summer break and the next time members meet will be for the trip to Clare Island on Friday, September 2 next. Details of this trip will appear in future notes and anyone who would like to join the trip and who has not already contacted Brian Nerney on (086) 2596656 is asked to do so immediately to confirm numbers for accommodation. All Ramblers are wished a happy and healthy break until early September.
