Beannachtai, members Laois RTAI,
Thanks to all who attended our November Social in the Dunamaise Arts Centre on Wednesday last. There was a great turn-out of 24 members for the film An Cailin Ciuin and the majority stayed on for the cuppa/chat after. The film seemed to have been well received by all and even though the auditorium was full and included a lot of second level students you could hear the proverbial pin drop.Credit to Lauren from Cafe Latte,Lyster Square for organising the refreshments for our group at the Dunamaise despite their Cafe there being officially closed.
As is the custom there will be no First Tuesday Social Meeting in December as this is traditionally our AGM month.
The AGM is set for THURSDAY 15th DECEMBER with the Meeting at 1.00pm in the KILLESHIN HOTEL,PORTLAOISE and this will be followed by a CHRISTMAS DINNER at 2.00pm for those who wish to stay on.
I am hoping to get the same room as we had for last year’s (Covid restricted) AGM which would mean meeting and dining in the same room. While the price of the meal has increased quite significently I would be proposing that the branch cover the cost as our funds are quite good (benefit of Covid restrictions). However I am also suggesting that members staying on for dinner might make a contribution to a collection for a Laois based charity (e.g. Cuisle Centre). I am aware that branches in other counties do this.
Any way I need to have a rough idea of numbers interested in attending AGM/dinner so that the hotel can allocate our conference room etc. so if you think there is a good chance that you will attend or not please let me know as soon as possible. You can change your mind nearer to the date before I confirm the actual numbers to the hotel.
Official notice re. AGM (Agenda etc. ) will follow and members who have not supplied an email address will be notified by post.
If you know of any member who is not getting my correspondence on their e-mail account please let me know and I can put them on my postal list.
