ICA

We had a very enjoyable walk on Sunday last. Thanks to all members who came out to support and gave in sponsorship money, any outstanding monies can be handed in at a later date. Our next meeting will be held on June 3rd at 8.30pm. Elaine Igoe from Forever Living Aloe Vera products will give a talk before our meeting and this is open to everyone so come along and see what it’s all about. Sandra and Olive are on teas and the competition is as invitation card to our upcoming craft day, so ladies get working. As this is our last meeting, we have a lot to discus so a full attendance would be appreciated. We still have plenty of room for new members and past members so feel free to come along, have a cuppa and a chat and maybe ye might join us in September.
