Timahoe Active Age Group was treated
to a medley of culture, drama and music, at the May Get-Together.
TIMAHOE DRAMA WORKS, under the baton of Elaine
Kane, entertained the hugely appreciative audience with
their recent production of "FIDDLER ON THE ROOF". Apart
from their very obvious musical talents, they impressed
all with their ability to adapt and improvise. Space in
Kelly's Lounge was at a premium, yet the large cast took
it all in their stride and staged a spectacular show,
like true professionals. Using the floor space in the
Lounge, weaving their' way through the audience, these
young actor's brought the show TO us, rather than performing
FOR US. The audience was spellbound and the well-deserved
applause at the end was heartfelt.... and deafening! We
thank Elaine and congratulate the children for transporting
us from the wet dreary May weather, for one night, with
their magical performance. We would like to acknowledge
the supporters of the weekly Bonus No. Apart from the
monthly Member's draw, the Bonus Sheet is the source of
funding for our Active Age Group. It has financed summer
outings, our St. Patrick's Day Trip and Christmas Party.
Without your support our excursions and events would be
hugely curtailed. Your continued support will be greatly

O.A.K. PARTNERSHIP AND KILDARE V.E.C
Many thanks to Paula McEvoy for researching,
compiling and organising the
Car Treasure Trail, held on Sunday, 23rd,

The Parenting Teens Course held
it's sixth and final session on Thursday, 3Oth May. We
wish to acknowledge O.A.K., whose funding made this course
possible and also, Brenda Kennedy, facilitator, who presented
a structured and informative course.
The Personal Development
Course, facilitated by Catherine Leonard, was enlightening
and enjoyable. Kelly's Kitchen was transformed into a safe
haven for the eight sessions, with gentle candlelight, soothing,
scented oils and relaxing background music. Catherine's
calm manner lent a serenity that added to the overall atmosphere.
This course was organised by the Women's Group and funded
by the dept. of Social, Community & Family Affairs. Each
and every one of the participants benefited from the course
content, the support offered by the group and the ambience
of the setting.
