On Friday the Social Gathering for Members and friends was held. A huge thank you to all who contributed to the success of the Charades Night. Bar BBQ Kitchen and Clean Up all did a great job. Highlight of the meal were the superb deserts from Cheryl’s Kitchen at the House of O’Halloran. The charades provided plenty of laughs and highlighted both the moderate and magnificent theatrical skills we have in the Club. Some photos above.
