Weekly News 22nd November 2015

For the past few years we have had a lovely Christmas Tree in the car park of Kilbarron village. This year we intend to add a little extra colour by inviting people to write a note, a joke or a quote on a Wish Card, then tie it onto the tree and watch the wishes float. We plan to have 2 workshops on November 24th and 25th in the Small Hall, from 7.30pm to 9.30pm where people can come and write their cards, and have them ready for December 6th when we will have the official ‘turning on’ of lights on the tree. The Wish Cards will cost €2 each or 3 for €5. For more info please contact Marcella 087 6879502 or Margaret 087 2772545.
