KILCASH COMMUNITY CENTRE - SPONSORED WALK: This year’s event takes place on Friday, May 27, beginning in the Community Hall at 7.30pm. The five mile walk, through the local forest, can be completed at one’s own pace, therefore is suitable for all and is an enjoyable social occasion in very pleasant surroundings. With walking now so popular for health and fitness, we hope to see the committed walkers join with the more leisurely inclined in supporting a genuine and worthwhile cause. The pupils and teachers of Kilcash school have made a major contribution to the success of this event over a number of years, and with major expenditure that will enhance our facility in the pipeline, we hope for increased support from the general community on this occasion. So take a sponsorship card, encourage your friends and together with a little help from the many we can achieve our goal. Sponsorship Cards can be had from any member of the committee or by contacting 052 6133167. So let’s look forward to a pleasant enjoyable and successful evening on May 27th.
CARDS: Another season comes to a conclusion on this Wednesday (May 11) when Kilcash Ladies Club host the final game of this card season.
