Beannachtai members Laois RTAI,
I am pleased to say we had a great response to the invitation re. OCTOBER SOCIAL EVENT and it will go ahead as planned on the first TUESDAY of OCTOBER (4th) in the MANOR STONE SHOP/BUILDING at the Motorway Junction outside Ballacolla with a 2.00pm start. Personnel from the Garden Centre will give a talk re. Autumn Planting and I’m sure will try to answer any queries that may arise. Manor Stone is/are giving 20% discount on all plants/garden accessories and I believe everything in their shop (household,decorations,etc.etc.)to our members who attend.. Afterwards there will be tea/coffee and edibles (sweet) available and time to socialise. If you have already responded theres no need to confirm but if you haven’t responded and wish to be added please let me know before next Monday.(there was a minimum requirement but no maximum).
For those of a more energetic disposition a member from the Ballacolla area has suggested a walk around the nearby Grantstown Lake as a nice pre-meeting exercise. The circuit of the lake I’m told is c. 45 minutes so a 1.00 pm start or a little earlier is suggested.Alternatively you can do it afterwards.
The date for the next GOLF OUTING has been set as Friday 28th October in Portarlington (Garryhinch) Golf Club. More details and reminders will follow.
Also there has been a very favourable response to the invitation to the Dunamase Arts Centre for the showing of the scannan AN CAILÍN CIÚIN on WEDNESDAY 9TH NOVEMBER at 11.00 am so you can take it that will be our November Social event . More information etc. will follow.If you havent already expressed an interest in attending please let me know and I may be able to add you to list.Also if you had hoped to attend and have a change of plan please let me know.
Sheelagh Coyle has forwarded information to me re. a programme Creativity In Older Age-Talking Art which will take place over a day a week for 5 weeks in September/October/November which might be of interest to some people. I have added a poster re. same as an attachment (art info) to this letter but if you can’t get it that way please let me know and I will send it to you seperately at your email address. The venues for the programme are Rathdowney,Portlaoise,Abbeyleix and Portarlington.
