WITH MOST SWALLOWS having now returned home, the Library committee is now busily working on a programme of activities and events for the summer.
First up is a Ladies Lunch at the popular Algarrobo Restaurant in La Paz on Thursday, May 11, with a 1pm for 1.30pm start.
The three-course meal, including wine, is priced at €15 per person. As usual, book your place at the Treasurer’s Desk.
Also in the pipeline is our ever-popular Summer Quiz, but more on that nearer the date.
THE PRESIDENT and all volunteers at the Library would like to wish all members and friends a very Happy Easter. The Library will be open as usual, except on Good Friday, April 14, when we will be closed.
But we re-open the following day, Saturday April 15, at 10am.
Unfortunately the weather wasn’t on its best behaviour for our annual Pig Roast.
Nevertheless it was a huge success, despite the fact that the prospect of rain forced it to be held indoors.
We extend our thanks to all those who attended and who helped to make it a most enjoyable afternoon.
A clever young man called Chris Hair;
A talk at the Library will dare;
He’s chosen as his topic;
The Lure of the Limerick;
We sincerely hope you’ll be there
Chris’s talk will take a humorous look at the history of Britain’s only native verse form, from Chaucer to present day. Please bring your sense of humour along with you.
The talk starts at 12noon on Thursday, March 9 and will be followed by a buffet with wine. Admission is €8.
One of our most popular events of the calendar, the annual Pig Roast, takes place on Saturday, March 18, with a 1.30 for 2pm start.
As ever with this event, please make sure you book early at the Treasurer’s Desk to avoid disappointment. Admission is €15 euros, which will include wine.
OUR ANNUAL Volunteers Lunch raffle is up and running and there are lots of prizes to be won.
The library could not function without the time and dedication given by our 40-plus volunteers, so please buy some tickets. Hopefully, you will win a prize and help us take these hard-working ladies and gents out for a meal and a glass or two. Cheers!
The next in our series of talks is entitled The Lure of the Limerick and will be delivered by our very own Chris Hair. He will be taking a light-hearted look at the history of Britain’s only native verse form, from Chaucer to the present day. Please bring your sense of humour along with you. The talk starts at 12 noon on Thursday, March 9 and will be followed by a buffet with wine, all for €8.
