KILLARGUE SCHOOLS REUNION POSTERS: Look out for these across the local villages and towns in the area....they give details of what’s going on and where.
REUNION PLANNING GROUP MEETING: Everyone is welcome to turn up and help with the advanced planning of the 3 days of Reunion activities. The next meeting is on Wednesday 17th July starting at 8.30pm. If you are unable to get along to the meeting but can offer your help at one or all of the events then please let either Martin Kelly or Patty Reynolds know.
COMMUNITY AUDIT: The Development Association is really on a roll at the moment and is undertaking a Community Audit over the next 6 weeks or so. This is part of the Community Leadership Programme that the committee is currently undertaking and is designed to discover from local residents just what everyone would like to see happening in the Community Centre, what extra activities or services the Development Association could help to provide and what’s working/not working in our community. Members of the association will be calling at homes across Killargue and asking you to help with the work by completing a questionnaire that’s been prepared. The questionnaire will either be left with you for collection on another day or it can be completed on the spot. It won’t take long....and it’ll help a lot.
KILLARGUE CAR TREASURE HUNT: Starting at the Community Centre at 6.30pm on Sunday 21st July this event is just a bit of fun for the summer! The idea is that you pitch up in your car with your family or friends or both, you’ll be given a set of clues which will take you around the locality and might even have some connection with the Schools Reunion...or not! It’s not about being first back but about completing the route....there might even be prizes.....to find out you’ll need to go along. Look out for the posters!
MEDJUGORGE PILGRIMAGE: The pilgrimage will be taking place between 4th-11th October and cost from €520. For details details contact 044-9371787 / 087-6851691.
