St Patrick’s Day 2012– Burtonport.
Following the recent open meeting it was agreed that to hold celebrations in the community centre from 12 – 2. Preparations are currently under way and the committee requires your help to see this through.
We desperately need donations of prizes which we can use on the day and as a result members of the committee will begin to approach local businesses in the Rosses this week requesting sponsorship in the form of prize/financial donation etc…
If individual families are in a position to donate a prize e.g. some chocolates, flowers, a painting, a bottle of wine, a gift you have received but have no use for…we would be very grateful for the donation. Please let us know about the gift donation ASAP so that we can allocate prizes to various games and raffles.
We are also calling all traditional musicians, dancers and marching bands in the area to consider sharing your talent with the community for a couple of hours on this day. Thank you.
