Take the Challenge! The Emmets are seeking additional volunteers for the “Annual Christmas Day Swim” at Creevy! For over thirty years the club has been financially helping local charities through this worthy event; all monies raised go towards local groups or societies and will assist them greatly in their specific work! This is the ultimate “ice challenge” even if you can’t swim; for the sake of a few minutes; you can defy the elements for the benefit of a good cause. The swim is totally supervised by the local Sub-Aqua Recovery Unit! This is a special occasion for the young and old swimmers some of whom have been participating for many years! Brave men and women are invited to “take the plunge” and participate in the fun and excitement! Refreshments will be available with a little something to warm the cockles of the heart! Pass the word or share this message with someone who might be courageous enough to offer their “goodwill” on the Festive Day! More details next week!
Thanks to all those who helped to sell the Club Lotto on Main Street on Saturday and Sunday last; the response was great and the venture was very successful; in fact it was so successful that club chairman sold the winning lotto!
